Friends of Woodlands Introduction

We are a group of parents that volunteer our time to help organise, plan and run events for the children of Woodlands Academy. All the money raised goes right back to funding items within the school to enhance our children’s school experiences.


Every year we organise the biggest event in the Woodlands' diary – the school Summer Fair! This is always such a fun event for the children, teachers, parents and our local community.  We have also organised events such as the Christmas Fair, Mothers and Father’s Day Gift Sales, Easter Competition, Mufti/Fancy Dress Days, Leavers Discos and Santa’s Christmas Visit.  We also run refreshments stands at school events such as parent’s evenings and sports day.


Over the years we have donated funds for the school to buy the following; 

The trim trail located on the school field, this has been hugely popular with the children and has enhanced their playtimes.

Installed several teepees on the school field for the children to play in and find shade during the summer months. 

End of Summer Party for all the children at the school to celebrate the start of the summer holidays! 

We helped to secure a grant which transformed an old patch of unused ground into a beautiful garden for the children to explore and relax in. 

We funded last year’s Year Six Leavers Disco to give them a lovely send off on their new adventures. 

We currently have a pot of money to spend in which we are consulting the children as to what they would like in their school. 

Our team is not very big and we would love for you to join us! It’s always great to get a fresh perspective, see some new faces and get some new ideas.  Please let reception know if you can help and a member of the PTA will contact you.
