Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.

Special Education Needs

Woodfield is a very positive, forward looking school where staff work together as a team with a shared vision for future developments. Our main aim is to provide real quality education and support for our pupils, all of whom have severe learning difficulties and some have disabilities such as physical and sensory impairments and autism. We cater for up to 67 pupils aged 3 to 19, with an Autism Base for an additional 9 pupils. Our last Ofsted in July 2003 was very positive Ofsted and we have been re-accredited with the Investors in People award. We are involved in many interesting developments, including Records of Achievement, integration with mainstream schools, ASDAN etc. We have an Autism Resource Base, a new Technology Art Science Block and plans for further expansion. As a school, we place high importance on the value of the individual, and on equal opportunities for all. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum, including the National Curriculum, which ensures that all pupils have the opportunity to develop the basic and necessary skills, as well as having full access to subjects, such as Music, Drama, Technology, Art and Craft and Science. All pupils have Individual Education Plans and we provide a developing curriculum, which is age appropriate and caters for the individual needs of each pupil as they move through the school. We believe our task as teachers and support staff, is to enable all our pupils to reach their highest levels of personal achievement and independence.
