Woodlands in Bloom We raised £ 467.00 at the Easter Coffee Morning and have been using it to buy seeds, plants, bulbs etc. We will be selling products at our Summer Coffee Morning on the 18th July and all proceeds will be used to fund next year’s ‘Woodlands in Bloom’.


Welcome to the latest newsletter.

The displays around school are wonderful and really brighten our days!

Student Council The Student Council worked really hard to recruit our new Headteacher. They asked lots of interesting questions and hope they made the right decision!

Sensory Pod The base for the Sensory Pod is now complete and work will commence on the final build on 7th July. We will be holding an official opening in September when all those who have supported us through fundraising will be invited to attend.

Dear Parents/Carers and Friends

School Closes Wednesday 23rd July School Opens Wednesday 3rd September

As you all know the Governors have appointed Mr Cole Andrew as Headteacher for Woodlands with effect from 1st September this year; we all look forward to welcoming him to Woodlands School and to the Woodlands family. Cole is hoping to spend some time in school prior to September, and is looking forward to meeting and getting to know the pupils and their parents/ carers. Now that we are in the Summer term we need to ensure that our pupils are safe in the sun. Please send some sunscreen into school, labelled with your child’s name and also some protective headwear. We have a busy final half term ahead of us, and a number of events have been planned over the next few weeks. (Please see below for details). We look forward to seeing you at some of these events. Finally may I take this opportunity to thank you all for your support over the last school year; Bev Salthouse and I will be resuming our normal roles as from September.
