Pastoral Care Team
At Woodside we have a pastoral team who are here to offer support to you and your family.
Mrs Beales, Miss Smallwood, Mrs Day and Mrs King encourage you to ring the school if you have any concerns. These could be school related or an issue that you are dealing with as a family.
They can help support your child in school as well as help you get the support you need as a family.
