|Wodensfield Primary School consists of three buildings. The Infant School was built in 1931 and extensively modernised in 1972-3. Children are admitted into a school Infant Class at the beginning of the Autumn or Spring Term. There are two intakes into a reception class during the academic year depending on birth date.|
The Nursery has 40 morning places and 40 afternoon places. It is housed in a separate building with its own play area. There is a teacher in charge of the Nursery and 3 Nursery Nurses. Most children spend at least one full year in the Nursery before moving into school in either September or January depending on their age.
The Junior School was opened in September 1971. It is designed as a "flexible- planned unit". This gives us the facility of being able to move internal partitions around to provide a greater variation of room layout should pupil or staff numbers vary.
The two main teaching "wings" are (at present) each sub-divided into four teaching areas. These blocks are often referred to as Upper and Lower School. The Junior and Infant Schools were amalgamated to form one school providing education from 3 - 11 in 1990.
There are five playgrounds surrounding the buildings. The nursery, infants and juniors all have separate playgrounds and provision is made during junior playtimes for children to have quiet areas as well as energetic areas.
