We are raising funds to improve and develop our children's soft play area.  Much of the equipment is around 15 years old now and in need of replacement. Please consider supporting us through your work,  charitable events such as a coffee morning or through groups you attend.  Every penny donated goes straight to the children and they are very appreciative of your support. 



Our Next Meeting










We have an exciting new opportunity to volunteer to support our hydrotherapy sessions here at Woodlands School.

 The role involves ensuring that sessions are as safe and enjoyable as possible for our young people. You will provide support to our staff so that problems are spotted and dealt with safely and effectively.

 You will need to be confident, approachable and have excellent communication skills, along with a responsible and caring attitude.

 Full Health & Safety training will be provided by the school and a DBS check will also be completed.

 The session times are term-time only:

Monday – Friday: 9.00am – 11.45am and 1.00pm – 3.30pm.

Please note that will not be required to attend all sessions
