School Description

Woodlands School is part of the federation, Wood View Learning Community. There is a secondary school, primary school and children’s centre on the same site. The Wood View short break service, within the school building, provides residential and flexible respite care for some of the pupils and is subject to a separate inspection. The governing body is of the whole federation, but was reorganised in December 2012 and devolved some of its decision-making powers to management committees for the individual schools. Almost all pupils have a statement of special educational needs for physical, sensory and/or complex medical needs. Those without a statement are undergoing statutory assessment. The proportion of pupils known to eligible for the pupil premium is average. A very small proportion are eligible for Year 7 catch up premium. The proportion of pupils entering and leaving the school at times other than would normally be expected is well above average.
