They have a fantastic team of teachers and support staff, led by a fabulous headteacher that all want the very best for each and every child.
Parents are encouraged to share their thoughts and feelings and the school ensures they work with families to see that all the children are happy.

Woodlands offers a calming environment, enthusiastic teaching and constructive support.
I particularly love the “back to nature” approach and forest school.
My son is really happy here and he’s continually progressing, not just academically but socially and emotionally too.
