Welcome to Woodeaton Manor School, a daytime and residential Foundation Special School that offers a nurturing environment for 60 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.
