A Parent's Guide to Choosing a Special School


School Description

Woodlands is an independent school which opened in December 2013. The previous standard inspection of Woodlands was in November, 2014. Ofsted carried out a no-notice emergency inspection in April 2015. The school is owned and managed by Halliwell Homes, which owns residential accommodation adjacent to the school. The school provides education for pupils who currently attend the home and are not in mainstream schooling. The school provides education for pupils with social, emotional and mental health difficulties. It is registered to admit up to nine girls and boys, aged between six and 14. Inspection report: Woodlands School, 14–16 November 2017 Page 8 of 11 There are currently eight pupils on roll, four of whom have an education, health and care plan. The vast majority of pupils are of White British heritage. The head of education manages three other Halliwell schools. Since the last inspection, a new senior lead teacher manages this and one other school on an operational basis. The school aims to ‘provide the best quality of education and care for vulnerable children through a vibrant curriculum which fully prepares pupils for their future economic wellbeing and nurtures outstanding personal development’. The school aims to successfully re-engage pupils with an appropriate mainstream or special school provision within 12 to 18 months of enrolment. The school uses local sports facilities for physical education and games. The school does not currently use any alternative provision.
