Special Education Needs

We cater for pupils who have severe and multiple learning difficulties and/or emotional and behavioural difficulties. Woodcroft School aims to put the needs of its pupils first. Our approach is child-centred, providing the flexibility to adapt to pupil's needs and integrate with local authority provision. Our staff team aims to offer a safe and supportive environment within which, pupils can develop their full potential and live healthy, satisfying and independent lives within society. We believe that children should be treated with dignity and respect and are committed to equality of opportunity and to raising pupils' self-esteem by treating them in a positive way. We acknowledge that some children have very special difficulties but that acceptance, understanding and intensive periods of positive intervention can effect change.
