School Description

Pupils who come to this school usually have needs that are to do with emotional issues or their mental health. This can mean that they have missed out on large parts of their learning at other schools. At Wood Edge, they get the support and care that they need to help them do their best. They feel safe. Their self-confidence returns so that they can get back into learning again. Pupils have a better experience of school compared to the last inspection. Behaviour is better now. There are clear expectations that pupils will cooperate with the school’s behaviour policy. Staff make sure they carry it out consistently. Bullying is very rare. The school has systems in place that show that leaders will not put up with it, if it happens. By the end of key stage 4, pupils have more choice of subjects they can get qualifications in. These include bushcraft and health and social care. However, the subjects that leaders provide in other age groups are not as well organised as they should be. Pupils get opportunities to learn beyond the classroom. Activities outdoors help them to develop confidence. Visits to places of interest, like museums, help to deepen their understanding of their learning.
