More than a school


Welcome to our website! We hope you are enjoying your way round. Please use the navigation to find out important information about Smith's Wood Primary Academy.

Collection of pupils

Children in KS1 and Foundation stage (ie aged 7 or below) must be collected by a responsible adult. It is not appropriate for young children to be escorted by older school age children.
Children who have not been collected by 3.20pm will be supervised in the after school club. (please note that this will be charged at the standard rate)

Text service

To access this free service, please leave your up to date mobile number with the office. Important reminders and trip updates can then be received by text.


Parents and carers are requested not to park in the school car park. Public spaces 
are available on Burton`s Way and in the neighbouring streets. The area directly outside the front of the school is a no parking area. We ask that parents do not park in front of the school as this creates a hazard on what is a main bus route. 

Play Equipment

The school has a wide range of  outdoor play equipment. We request that parents/carers ensure that children of non-school age are directly supervised before the start of the school day and at the end of the school day.

School Closure

In the event of an emergency closure (eg snow), information will be posted on the school website and text service (up to date mobile phone numbers are required for this option).   Note that Smith`s wood will remain open if at all possible. Assume that the school is open unless informed via text or through the website.
