This week Morrisons Verwood Store Community Champion Jenny Cook was pleased to present a £10,000 donation from the Morrisons Foundation to The Sheiling Ringwood.

Corine van Barneveld, Principal said: ‘’We are immensely grateful to the Morrisons Foundation for this generous donation which will be used to fund the purchase of a vehicle for The Sheiling Ringwood. This fulfills an essential transport requirement for our young people to take part in offsite visits for work experience and medical appointments. In addition, as part of their lessons and life skills, students travel off site for a variety of activities including horse riding, swimming, hiking, and visiting museums. As many of our students are also resident here, they take part in various leisure activities such as going to the zoo, the cinema, and the beach and this donation with greatly help enhance the quality of our students’ lives’’.

The Morrisons Foundation was established in 2015 to provide financial support to registered charities operating in communities across the UK.

David Scott, Trustee of the Morrisons Foundation, said: "The Morrisons Foundation provides support to charities making a difference to people in local communities. This donation will help The Sheiling Ringwood deliver important services in the local area.”

The Sheiling Ringwood is offering a free workshop on Education, Health & Care Plans (EHCPs) & E-Safety for the parents of children or young people with complex educational needs.

The first part of the day will provide parents with guidance and help to unravel the process of transferring from Statements to EHCPs. This change has come about as a result of The Children and Families Act 2014, with one of the key changes being the introduction of EHCPs which have replaced Statements of special educational needs.

Eleanor Wright from SOS!SEN will give a presentation about EHCPs and will share ideas on how to achieve the best outcomes and will identify useful resources. For the last hour, there will be an E-safety workshop to help parents ensure that their children are kept safe when online.

Representatives from The Rose Road Association will be on hand to offer 1:1 support sessions.

The workshop will run from 10.00am – 2.30pm and includes a free buffet lunch. It will be held at The Sheiling Ringwood, Horton Road, Ashley, Ringwood, BH24 2EB.

Please email Sharon at [email protected] if you have questions and to register for the event.
