Woodlands Primary School is an inclusive school, which offers a wide range of provisions, over and above Quality First Teaching, to meet the needs of all the SEND pupils within our care. At Woodlands we recognise that pupils with SEND may require additional support to enable them to meet their full potential. Through carefully differentiating lessons, the provision of specialist resources and targeted interventions, we support and challenge our children, encouraging all to become confident, independent learners who leave Woodlands with the skills needed to access their next step in education. We work with a range of external agencies to support pupils with SEND - enabling them to access the curriculum and develop a range of academic, social and emotional skills.
If you have any concerns about your child, please arrange an appointment to meet their class teacher or contact Miss Finney directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
