Devon Winter Games Cross Country County Champions!!

Well done to our Year 3/4 children who competed in the Devon Winter Games Cross Country Championship. The Girls team won overall and the boys team came 2nd overall! We are incredibly proud of you all! The mile run challenge seems to be building some excellent running stamina! Well done Mrs Martin and all the teachers, it does make the difference! Thank you to Mrs Martin and the parents who got up incredibly early to drive the children down to Torbay!

What to do in the event of a severe weather warning!

Please look on the school website and check your emails too. A message will be sent via email, posted on the school website and also announced on the local radio if the school is closed due to severe weather conditions.

Many thanks to the parents who attended our Maths workshop.

KS2 Equipment Reminder

Dear Parents

May we remind you of the equipment that your child needs whilst in Key Stage 2 at Woolacombe School, please.

Every child will need to have a book bag and must have a P. E. kit, including a mouth guard and shin pads, in a drawstring bag.   Please note plastic carrier bags and rucksacks are not appropriate for school.  We lack storage and hanging space and therefore need your support.

All property should be named, please (in as many places as possible)

All children in Classes 4, 5 & 6 need to have their own stationery as follows:

  • a fountainpen or different type of pen e.g. roller ball etc.pencil case(s),
  • coloured crayons and felt tip pen
  • eraser, pencil, small ruler, protractor
  • their own ‘Pritt’ stick would be helpful too.

We of course do supply all the above at school, but it is better for your child to look after their own equipment in preparation for Secondary School. It also encourages them to become responsible and independent learners.


Finally, please ensure that your child wears the correct school uniform and sensible footwear.


We do appreciate and THANK YOU for your support


Gail Holmes

Uniform Reminder

Dear Parents,

Start of term uniform reminder  – 


 Red Woolacombe jumper or cardigan with school badge.

White shirt or polo shirt with a collar.

Dark grey / black school trousers or skirt.

For school, all girls or boys with long hair need to tie it back. Please use a plain dark hair band or hair tie (a red one would be lovely!).

No hair product to be worn in the hair please.

Plain black, flat soled or small heel, school shoes (trainers are acceptable as long as they have no markings and are plain black). No boots please.

Please do not wear jewellery. Children can wear studs in ears and a watch (an analogue model with hands is best to learn to tell the time).

In the Summer, children can wear dark grey or black tailored shorts (boys and girls) or red gingham summer dresses.

PE Kit

(This needs to be a change of clothes)

A white T-shirt for warm weather and indoors. A red sweatshirt for outdoors, which can be bought through the school office and a wind proof lightweight coat (this is not essential but can be worn if the weather is poor).

Black shorts. Training shoes to suit the activity undertaken (if the children are wearing shoes with laces, they must be able to tie them).
