Special Education Needs
Woodlands is a purpose built school catering for pupils with a range of learning needs including severe and complex learning difficulties and autistic spectrum disorder. Woodlands School shares a campus with Little Stanmore, a first and middle school. The two schools are joined together allowing for the development of an inclusive partnership. Both are fully accessible and provide pupils with a variety of learning environments. Woodlands School has specialist resources which include a hydrotherapy pool with sound and light equipment, a sensory studio, a soft play room and music room. Specialist technology, science and art rooms are shared with Little Stanmore and provide further opportunities for inclusive learning. Children from both schools also have the opportunity to play together on outside play areas. We believe that our curriculum should meet the needs of our learners by offering them access to a wide range of opportunities through which they can develop their individual skills, knowledge and understanding. In order to achieve this, our work is based on the framework of the national curriculum. We also believe that the children at Woodlands have specific needs and that these needs must also be addressed in many different ways if they are to make progress. In each class, the environment and delivery of the curriculum is managed in a specific manner eg using workstations in a highly structured way or using a much more sensory approach to learning. The school also has access to specialist supports from the LA Sensory and Communication Team. At Woodlands we are guided by our vision in all that we do for pupils. We will create an environment that challenges us to learn about the world we live in through rich and varied experiences.
