Tettenhall Wood School, in Regis Road, has received over £5,000 for its Forest Schools project which helps children learn about nature and the importance of the environment.

Tettenhall Regis councilors Jonathan Yardley, Sohail Khan and Udey Singh visited the school to see how the money they had allocated from the ward fund was being used.

Councilor Khan said: “I was delighted to visit the school and see the children enjoying their new learning module.

“We wanted to allocate money for a project that would really make a difference, so when the teachers at Tettenhall Special School asked for help paying for a new learning module, it was the perfect match. “

The Tettenhall Regis ward fund still had £5,500 and councilors agreed to donate it to the special school for the group.

Councilor Khan added: “This school is a very important part of our community, the work they do with the children here is so inspiring.

“The wonderful thing about the new learning module is that kids will be able to venture out of the classroom and learn outside, which is a great experience.”

Tettenhall Wood School provides education for 71 pupils, aged 5-19, with complex learning difficulties, the majority of whom also have a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder.
