Welcome to Woodeaton Manor School, a daytime and residential Foundation Special School that offers a nurturing environment for 68 pupils, all of whom have a Statement of Special Educational Need, with severe emotional and social difficulties in Key Stages 2/3/4/5.

Woodeaton Manor School changed designation in 2004 from a school providing for pupils with moderate learning difficulties to a school for pupils with emotional and social difficulties.

Woodeaton Manor caters for a wide range of special educational needs, including the following diagnosed or described conditions:

  • Attention Deficit (Hyperactivity) Disorder  (ADD/ADHD)

  • Attachment Difficulty

  • Autistic Spectrum Disorder, including Asperger’s Syndrome

  • Dyspraxia

  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)    

  • Specific Learning Difficulties, i.e. Dyslexia

  • Speech and Language Disorder

  • Tourettes Syndrome

A large proportion of pupils have mental health issues and require extended support from a range of multi-professional services.

Woodeaton has extended its age limits twice since its re-designation. In 2009 Woodeaton established its Sixth Form provision and in June 2012, Woodeaton lowered  the age limit to admit six Key Stage 2 age pupils who are taught in ‘The Nest’ (Now Everyone Succeeds Together). Woodeaton also became a Foundation School on 1st April 2008.
