Welcome to Woodside Primary School!

for prospectus

We are set in wonderful grounds with views across the Forest of Dean. We are very lucky to have an attractive, well maintained school; we are well resourced and have a very good reputation. We enjoy strong relationships with our families and work in partnership so that children can enjoy their school life.

We are part of The Forest Federation of Soudley, Steam Mills and Woodside Primary Schools and all schools benefit from our partnership; the sharing of resources and expertise.  We share a Governing Body, leadership and excellent practice across the three schools. 

Our school is consistently judged as ‘Good’ by Ofsted and we are proud to be part of this lovely community.

We have around 110 children on roll and have up to 16 part-time pre-schoolers in each session. In pre-school, we have provision for 2 year olds up to when children start in reception, with 31 part-time pre-schoolers altogether. We have caring, skilled and committed members of staff and a vibrant curriculum; everything is in place to make sure your child will thrive during his or her time with us.

At Woodside School, we promote British Values and uphold our School Values of determination, respect, friendship, tolerance, self-belief and courage.

Please see our Parents’ Info and Curriculum tabs, which have lots of information about our school. Our Newsletters will give you a flavour of recent events. Click on the Woodside logo to get back to our home page.

Please get in touch if you have any queries. A visit is the best way to get a feel of our ethos, so please feel free to make an appointment by contacting the school office on 01594 542287.

With best wishes,

Mrs Davis
