INSET day at Woodlands – 16th February 2018

Woodlands finishes for half term on Thursday the 15th of February, as the school has an INSET day on Friday.

Staff will be training all day so the half term break will finish slightly early. We hope everyone has a nice relaxing holiday.

We look forward to seeing everyone back in school on Monday the 26th of February 2018.

Sport For Champions comes to Woodlands

We are really pleased with the amazing success of the Sport for Champions sports day in school.

We welcomed Eden Francis, the British Olympic shot Putter and Discus thrower to Woodlands on Wednesday the 24th of January.

She helped to organise the sports day in the gym where staff and pupils alike completed a training circuit. It helped to raise over £400 for champions like Eden and also some of the money will go to the school to help buy new sports equipment. So hopefully we will have champions of our own one day!

Thank you to everyone who helped make the day an amazing success and especially all those people who sponsored pupils and staff members alike.


Poland Trip 2018

We are currently planning a trip to Krakow, Poland in 2018. We have had a long running partnership with a special school in Krakow and have visited them several times over the last few years. The trips have been very successful and we are keen to let a new generation experience the trip.

We would like to find out if any current key stage 3 pupils would be interested in going on the trip next year. It is likely to be in May or June 2018.

We will cover the majority of the costs of the trip. But we do ask for a non refundable deposit to cover the cost of flights. This is likely to be between £50 and £100.

All the accommodation and food costs will be met by school. If you are concerned about the cost then please contact us as we are happy to arrange payment schedule which does not exclude anyone.

If you or your child would like to know more about the trip please contact Mr Tyler, the International Coordinator.

Children In Need Success!

The fundraising day for Children in Need was really popular and everyone who took part had great fun. The cakes and refreshments were very popular as always and we were really glad to be able to welcome so many parents into school.

We raised £250 for a very worthy cause and all the pupils who helped run the stalls did a fantastic job.

We would like to thank all those pupils, parents and carers and staff members who donated their cakes, time and money to make it a success. Thank you!

Children in Need at Woodlands Academy

On Friday 17th of November Woodlands Academy will be supporting the BBC’s Children in Need appeal.

In the afternoon from 1pm to 2.30pm the student council will be hosting a café. The café is open to parents, carers and relatives of Woodlands pupils. If you can please send in the reply slip indicating if you are likely to attend so we can help to plan numbers.

We will be offering a range of hot drinks, cakes and biscuits. All the money raised from the sales will go to Children in Need.  There will also be a white elephant stall, raffle, tombola and name the bear competition.  So please bring in some money or give it to your child to help us raise money for this worthy cause.

There will be a fancy dress costume competition, cinema and sports activities running all afternoon. If you have the time we would love to see you in school and if not please could you send in some pennies for your child to spend and raise money for Children in Need.

Have a great half term break

We hope everyone has an enjoyable and happy half term break. We are closed for two weeks today and return on Monday 6th of November.

With Halloween and Bonfire night on the horizon we would also like to remind everyone to be careful during the break. Please be safe on Bonfire night and think about who you visit and what you do if you go out trick or treating. Enjoy the celebrations but think about how you can enjoy them safely and responsibly.

Enjoy the holiday, Bonfire night and Halloween and we look forward to seeing you all on the 6th November!

Get dressed up for Halloween – Friday 20th of October

As the school is closed on the 31st of October – we will celebrate Halloween on Friday 20th of October. All pupils will be able to dress up in Halloween themed costumes or wildlife costumes!

It is also WWF World Wildlife Fund’s ‘Wear it Wild’ on the 20th of October. So any money donated will be given to support wildlife threatened all over the world.

Any questions please contact school

Macmillan Fundraising Success

After the very popular coffee morning we hosted we have had even more donations. The amount we have raised has now gone up to £330!

We would again like to take the opportunity to thank all the pupils, parents and staff members who helped to raised so much money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
