Head Teacher’s Welcome

Andrea Ashton-Coulton - Head Teacher, Woodfield Secondary SchoolWelcome to Woodfield School. Whilst a website is unable to represent all aspects of school life I hope it will give you an overview of what we can offer.

We provide education for young people with Learning and Additional Needs (LAN). A significant number of our pupils have language and communication difficulties, and an increasing number present with a broader complexity of needs. In addition, we have a purpose-built 16-19 provision on site and further details are to be found under the 16-19 section of the website.

Woodfield is a thriving and vibrant learning environment where all pupils are challenged to work to the very best of their ability. All that we do is aimed at improving the long term outcomes for our pupils and the families who support them. We strive to create an educational experience which recognises the need to support emotional wellbeing whilst ensuring that intellectual development is fostered.

We offer a rich and diverse curriculum which is guided by the National Curriculum and differentiated to provide a learning journey which is broad, balanced and relevant to the individual needs of our pupils.

We know that pupils learn best when they feel safe, valued and can adopt a ‘can do’ attitude. To this end a highly dedicated staff team work tirelessly to make learning motivating, engaging and relevant, in a safe and supportive environment in order to equip the pupils with the skills they will need both socially and academically for their life beyond school.

We recognise the challenges that families face in choosing the right school, I hope the website offers you the information you need. We do, however, welcome visits to the school to help you with your selection process and have planned monthly invites to prospective families so if you are interested please refer to our calendar and contact the school to book a visit.

If you have questions you may find our FAQs page useful. Our office staff are also happy to help answer any questions you may have. However, should you wish to ask myself a specific question then please complete the form on our contact page for the attention of (FAO) the Head Teacher. Alternatively call 01737 642623 and ask to speak to the Head Teacher.
