Message for parents picking up students attend of school day.

Parents will be aware that our car park is growing ever busier. To help us manage the busiest time at the end of the school day, may I ask all parents who are picking students up to wait until 3:10pm before arriving at the school car park. This means that the buses will have departed and there will be more room to pick up students safely.

A big thank-you.

I would like to thank all of those parents who have contacted me with kind words in relation to my recent announcement of retirement at the end of this year. I have valued great support from parents from the day that I arrived at Wollaston and will many wonderful families associated with our school. Sincerest thanks. Governors have agreed a process and timeline for appointing the next Headteacher and hopefully, will secure a new appointment in the next few weeks.
