Our Aims


"At Woodthorpe we aim to ensure that your children have the best possible education that equips them with the skills, knowledge, qualities and values that will follow them through life.

News from Woodthorpe

Nasal Flu Vaccines

Every year the nasal flu is offered free to children from reception through to Year 7. Consenting to the vaccine for your child will help protect them from what could be a very serious illness. It will not only protect the child, but also those around them that are at their most vulnerable i.e. elderly, young children and those that are immunosuppressed.

Our Flu Vaccine Information Pack will enable yourself as a parent/guardian to make an informed decision as to whether your child should be vaccinated or not.

If you would like your child to receive the nasal flu vaccine in school please follow this link to complete an online consent form;

The vaccinations will take place at your child's school on 02/11/2020. The link will close on 25/10/2020. If your child has already had the Nasal Flu vaccine since Sept 2020 please disregard this message.

If you have any problems accessing the link please telephone 0333 358 3397 (opt 7).

Notification of Single Case of COVID-19

We have been advised by Public Health England that there has been a confirmed case of COVID-19 within the school.

We know that you may find this concerning but are continuing to monitor the situation and are working closely with Public Health England. Our Advice to All Parents letter (28 Sept 2020) is to inform you of the current situation and provide advice on how to support your child. Please be reassured that for most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness.

The small number of children who have been in direct prolonged contact with the confirmed case will have received an individual letter and will be staying at home for 14 days.

The school remains open and your child should continue to attend if they remain well.
