The school’s work to promote pupils’ personal development and welfare is outstanding.




At Woodlawn School we adopt a ‘can do’ approach which supports pupils to overcome their complex needs. Our curriculum ensures all pupils meet their potential through a rich variety of motivating, exciting opportunities planned with pupil individual learning as the focus.

We work closely with a range of professionals including: physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists and educational psychology service to support all pupils taking part in the full range of school activities.

We provide the care, guidance and support alongside an exciting and motivating curriculum to ensure pupils accumulate those memorable learning experiences throughout their school years.

We are very proud of our school and what our pupils achieve, showing great determination to overcome their personal challenges.

Pupils are proud to be members of this vibrant school community and enjoy coming to school. Woodlawn is a school that has the capacity and expertise to improve our pupils lives significantly. We achieve this by deploying expertise, close communication with parents, other professionals and external agencies. Above all we put our pupils first.

Thank you for considering Woodlawn School.

We look forward to beginning a long and lasting partnership with you and your child.

Yours faithfully,

Gill Wilson - Headteacher

One parent’s comment typified that of many, saying, ‘The leadership of the school is superb and clearly puts the needs of the children right at the centre of its ethos. Leaders display fantastic levels of empathy and emotional intelligence when dealing with parents, carers and the children, which promotes reciprocal respect and appreciation for what they do.’
