What does your child learn at school each day?


Find information about our curriculum subjects here.  You will find details about what pupils at each Key Stage are learning in the documents below.


Our curriculum is highly individualised and is adapted according to the needs of all pupils. It includes a strong focus on the development of communication and Literacy skills, as well as independence, in preparation for life beyond Woodlands.  

All Early Years Foundation Stage areas for learning and development or National Curriculum subjects are taught in all classes. Pupils follow the Comprehensive Literacy Approach, where all strands of literacy are followed over the course of the day, with phonics teaching differentiated to the needs of the class as appropriate. All pupils’ individual learning is planned for to ensure that they have meaningful and functional opportunities to work on their Education Health and Care Plan outcomes.  


Pupils in Key Stage 5 work towards ASDAN accreditations.  Pupils in the Post 16 class, follow a vocational curriculum, where they focus on life skills including functional literacy and maths.


All pupils in the Upper School (Year 7 - Year 14) take part in work experience at a range of levels, starting out with small jobs around the school moving on to working on the farm and mini-enterprise projects as they move further up the school.
