Parent and School Links

We try to give parents and carers as many opportunities as possible to encourage you to play a greater role in your child’s education.

Pupils' targets are shared with parents during Parents' Evenings. However, parents and carers don’t have to wait until these times to browse through your children’s books, you can just pop in and make an appointment with your child’s class teacher and view them.

Here are some useful links for parents and children at The Woodside Academy:
