General Information

Uniform  - Please make sure that all school uniform and PE kits are clearly labelled as it helps the children to identify their own belongings. 

Medication - Please let the school and your child's class teacher know if your child has any condition requiring medication, including allergies or asthma. If your child needs to be on a course of medication then please complete the relevant form with the school office. 

Our PE day is Monday.  Please ensure your child has their PE Kit in school.



Please support your child by reading to them as often as possible. Practicing writing their name and ensuring that children can form their letters. At Woodhouse West we believe that learning at home is a key aspect of children’s development. It helps children improve and consolidate key skills, and provides a valuable opportunity for children to share with their parents/carers learning they have been doing at school.

Each term, children will be encouraged to complete homework from a 'homework menu' from their class
teacher. This will be a range of activities relating to their current topic that parents can complete with their children. Please do share photographs of your children carrying out the tasks by e-mailing them to

The following resource contains lots of information and activities that you can do at home which will help your child understand numbers and the early Maths concepts.
