Plans for bad weather!

In the event of a significant snow fall this winter we will always endeavour to remain open. If we do take the decision that school must be closed we will always contact you via text message and any news will be posted on the school website. Local radio stations will also be informed of any updates.

When school is open on snowy days, the gate on Woodthorpe Road will remain locked so access must be gained via alternative entrances. This is to ensure the safety of all our pupils and parents. As you know - that path can become treacherous in the winter!!

Please can you make sure you keep us updated with new phone numbers and email addresses so this system can work effectively.

E-safety Guidance & CEOP

Staff at Woodthorpe Community Primary are committed to teaching our pupils about internet safety and being responsible internet users.

As part of the National Crime Agency, CEOP (The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre) gives great advice to parents and children about staying safe online.

Their dedicated website, Think You Know, allows worries about online activity to be explored and their 'Click CEOP' button can be used to report concerns.
