Parent and Community Engagement
At Woodside we believe that the school should be the hub of the local community. We have begun to develop this vision by hosting a number of community events over the last academic year.
On 7th November 2017, over 1300 parents, pupils, family members and local residents enjoyed our Fireworks Extravaganza.
Woodside held our inaugural Christmas Market on 2nd December 2017. It was a wonderful mix of local community traders, non-Walthamstow traders and members of Woodside community selling their wares in our Custom built Christmas market stalls. The day saw over 1800 people attend in what was a very succsessful event. We look forward to an even bigger event in December 2018.
Malawi's Lake of Stars Festival Event
On 10th March 2018 we were part of the London Wide Malawi Event. Woodside hosted part of the Walthamstow provision for the day. It was another great opportunity for the local community and a wider audience to be involved with the school.
Woodside Community Picnic
This summer will see our first Community family picnic, where we will invite local families to come and join us in our new Enrichment Centre. The children and parents will enjoy making sandwiches and fruit kebabs. It will be held on Saturday, 16th June 2018 and we are hoping for many families to attend.
The Woodside Parent & Community Lighthouse Team (WP&CLHT)
This year we have developed the idea of forming a Woodside parent and community group. This new group will support the school’s vison of becoming the hub of our local community. This will strengthen the school’s partnership with our parents/carers, develop fundraising avenues to supplement curriculum experiences for pupils and support local and international charities.
Their first venture will be supporting our International Food Festival on Friday, 13th July.
If you wish to join this group please contact the school office on 020 8520 5168 or email:firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information. Below are the next meetings date and time. Anyone and everyone are welcome to join.
