Internet Safety

Online safety remains a priority for children. Please ensure that you child is only able to access age appropriate materials. We are aware that some children have social media accounts such as Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter – guidelines for these sites have a 13 yr+ age recommendation so we would ask that parents reconsider their children’s access to these sites.

Schools have been made aware of some apps which may also be unsafe for children, these include myLOL, and Theses apps encourage children to upload pictures and videos and may put them at risk.

          Head Boy and Head Girl                                                                                       


Head Boy: "Woodbank is it's own community which goes out of it's way to make sure everyone is involved and feels part of the school. Our school has many activities to participate in so that children can be more active. The lessons are always interesting and the teachers also help you to reach your goals." 

Head Girl: "Our school has great pupils and teachers and the atmosphere is amazing. I am very honoured to be Head Girl and hope to be able to help our school climb even higher on the hill of success. Since nursery, the school has helped me learn in fun ways from school trips to all the different learning games and the pupils in this school are always respectable to those around them. These points are just some of the reasons that make our school amazing"
