Woodford Green Primary School
Woodford Green Primary School is situated on the edge of Epping Forest, in Woodford Green, outer London. Our Local Education Authority is the London Borough of Waltham Forest. Our Victorian school building is the oldest school building in Waltham Forest. We have a special oak tree in the middle of our playground which is thought to be about 500 years old - recently it was discovered that a colony of bats are living inside the tree.
It is a one-form entry school. At the moment we have approximately 200 pupils aged 4-11. We also have a Nursery unit, opened in 2002, which has 20 children attending it in the mornings and another 20 in the afternoons.
Our playground is quite small but we feel lucky to be so near Epping Forest. We often see wildlife near our school, such as ducks, herons and squirrels. The squirrels have been known to come and look in the windows when we are in our classrooms!
