Garden Plans

As you are aware, we are developing our pond/garden area on the top playground. We have started to clear this area and have been collating ideas for what may be placed there. We are now looking for someone to help us design this area. If you or anyone you know may be able to help, please email Mrs Baldock.


Home Learning 

All learning is placed on ClassDojo each day and teachers plan so there is no need for families to print anything.


We continue to think of you

We know this is not easy for anyone.  We know that family life can be pretty intense at the moment.   But we want you to know that we are thinking of you all and if there is any way that we can support you at home please email us at: office@woodcoteprimary.croydon.sch.uk
