Specialist Provision

Our staff are highly trained in a range of specialisms to meet the full range of needs and disabilities of those attending Woodlands.

The Academy’s staff team consists of staff with a range of expertise from our highly skilled teachers, instructors and teaching assistants who are all committed to meeting the needs of all the pupils in our care. We also have a Pastoral team and two trained Thrive practitioners.

We work in close co-operation with the Speech and Language Therapist, educational psychologist and specialist health professionals, to provide each pupil with a highly structured individual programme. Pupils have access to aspects of TEACCH, total communication, PECS, intensive interaction, social skills programmes, social stories, sensory integration therapy, occupational therapy and the National Curriculum.
