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.
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!
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
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.
Today we held a coffee morning to raise money for Macmillan cancer Support. The national campaign by Macmillan hopes to raise money to help those affected by cancer.
Pupils, staff and parents very kindly donated a huge array of cakes, pies tarts and treats. There were so many amazing cakes to mention everyone individually – so thank you to all those bakers who contributed.
Parents, pupils and members of staff enjoyed the delicious cakes and together we raised over £270. The most we have ever raised for our coffee mornings.
We would like to thank everyone who helped it make it a success. the money will go to a very good cause indeed.
We are really pleased and proud to congratulate our class of 2017 who have achieved the best ever set of exam results for Woodlands Academy.
The hard work of students and teachers alike has paid off and this can be clearly seen in our amazing exam results.
All of our students achieved multiple passes at Entry level, and over 85% achieved a pass at either GCSE or BTEC equivalent.
Our highest achieving student gained a GCSE pass or BTEC equivalent in 6 subjects and Entry level passes in 4 subjects.
All of our students have worked to the best of their ability and can leave us with their heads held high knowing they did their best and should be proud of what they have achieved.
We are proud of them and also the teaching staff and parents who have encouraged them every step of the way.
We are pleased to welcome back students for the start of the new academic year. We would like to extend a special welcome to all those students who have just started at Woodlands Academy.
We are all really excited about the new academic year at Woodlands academy and the interesting learning opportunities on offer here. Woodlands Academy is a great place to learn and thrive whatever your ability.
Woodlands recently took part in the Global Voices Network Sports Tournament. We won bronze medals in both the Football and Boccia competing against teams from Special Schools across Nottinghamshire.
The Boccia team were unfortunate to be drawn against the champions from Fountaindale School. But after losing initially they went onto win a tie breaker against Oak Field school who hosted the tournament.
The football team did extremely well also and were unlucky not to get silver medal after an amazing performance.
Congratulations to all those students from Woodlands who took part!
