A happy, inclusive school where we celebrate all achievements
At Woodlands School we are utterly committed to safeguarding the welfare and well being of our pupils.
We have clear and highly efficient Child Protection and Whistleblowing procedures.
We have a high number of staff trained in key areas of our provision: Child Protection, Safe Recruitment, Common Assessment Framework meetings (setting up multi-agency support), Manual Handling, "Team Teach" (de-escalation of conflict situations) and First Aid.
We have a full-time school Nurse and Nurses Assistant. Staff members are highly trained and skilled in meeting all personal care needs. We are committed to maintaining a high staff to pupil ratio in each class.
Woodlands unique family ethos comes from a constant focus upon ensuring that our pupils are safe, free of prejudice and bullying, and are enabled/feel confident to express themselves. We have developed a wide range of leadership roles for our pupils and explore ways in which they can be mutually supportive.
We constantly scrutinise our environment to ensure that it meets our pupils' entitlement to the best possible facilities and helps to maintain their physical and mental health.
We welcome scrutiny from Ofsted, Governors and the Local Authority to ensure that our safeguarding practice and procedures are outstanding.
