Obviously things are a bit different at the moment, but we are so pleased to be able to give the school £9000, which was raised from pre-lockdown events.
Huge thanks to everyone for making it possible! The money will be put towards the superb new canopy for Reception.
We'll continue to raise money whenever we can this year and will let everyone know if/when events will happen. All money we raise this year will go towards Chromebooks for the children.
For now, there are a few simple ways in which you can support the school online... please read below for ideas.
We are also planning a Bag2School clothes collection on Wednesday 4th November - so please don't throw away those unwanted clothes as we can turn them into cash!
Yes please: clothing, paired shoes, handbags, hats, bags, scarves, ties, belts, soft toys, linen, curtains, towels, bedding
No thanks: duvets and blankets, pillows and cushions, soiled or ripped clothing, school uniform with logo

A big hello from the Woodside PTA team
Money raised over the years has helped to fund a minibus, adventure climbing frames, library books, iPads and interactive whiteboards. In 2018/19, we were delighted to hand the school a cheque for £20,000, which was used to refurbish the Year 2 classroom.
None of this would be possible without the continued support of the parents and staff of Woodside. You can help by attending events, joining our 'Helper List', donating raffle prizes... or try asking your employer's HR department about match funding schemes. Our charity number is 290550.
