ICE Awards 2016
18 November 2016

Mrs Milford and Mrs Turner  were so proud to accompany Nairne and Nessia to the ICE awards last Friday.
These are special awards which recognise inspirational children in education. Miss Weeks nominated the girls for their bravery and can-do attitudes in overcoming difficulties in their lives, and for being positive role models to
others. The girls had the red-carpet treatment and enjoyed a wonderful evening of cupcakes, photographs, special goody bags and, of course, their beautiful ICE awards, engraved with their names. Well done girls – you really are showing Woodbury Salterton values in action!


Hindu Workshop
10 November 2016

Some of the pupils in Class Two were lucky to be able to participate in a Hindu workshop at Sidmouth College where they were active in finding out about Hinduism . They participated in a variety of workshops which included having a go at yoga to discover how Hindu’s listen to God and listening to and exploring how music can be used in worship. After hearing about the Hindu festival of Diwali, the children made their own rangoli patterns on Diwali lamps. The children had a fantastic time and discovered many new facts about Hinduism and the importance of religion to believers.


Foundation Stage Unit at Woodbury Salterton CE Primary School
8 November 2016

We are delighted to have finished our consultation on TUPE and are now in a position to confirm the staffing for next term in school! We are pleased to share the news that Sarah, Mary and Michelle will be involved in the Foundation Stage Unit from January. This will ensure that the children’s transition is as smooth as possible.

We’re excited about the opportunities that working as a Foundation Stage Unit form January will bring and have been working hard to develop what out Foundation Stage Unit will look like. We would like to invite any parents who have children aged two, three and four year olds to an information session on 15th November at 11.00am where you can meet the school staff and ask any questions you may have.

It would helpful for the school’s planning to know if you are interested in any sessions for your child by completing a School Nursery Application form which is available from the school office. Once we have this information, we can then confirm the exact sessions we will offer in January.

We recognise that for some parents this can feel like an unsettling time, however if you have any questions or would like to make an appointment to talk to a member of staff about this, please contact the school office. We do feel confident that we will be able to provide the same, if not more flexibility than was previously provided.
