The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website. Woodfield School provides for pupils who have severe learning difficulties. Many have additional complex needs, including autistic spectrum disorders, epilepsy or physical and sensory impairments. Many also need regular medical intervention.

Inspection report: Woodfield School, 28–29 November 2017 Page 11 of 14 There are 90 pupils on roll, aged 3 to 19 years. All pupils have an education, health and care plan.
