We are a small, specialist setting for children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 who all have an Educational Health and Care Plan (EHCP) because of a medical condition, disability and/or early social communication and interaction difficulties. We provide a range of learning experiences in a caring and secure atmosphere, where both effort and achievement are encouraged and praised. Our curriculum is tailored to the individual child, incorporating their EHCP outcomes and looking at ways in which we can support the development of the whole child. Every aspect of the day is a learning opportunity and these are utilised fully.


If you are considering Forest Wood as a setting for your child, please do phone to have a conversation with the Teacher in Charge and/or arrange to visit the site.

Take a look at our video to give you an insight into some of the things we do at Forest Wood.


“x has enjoyed his time at Forest Wood and although he has only made a small amount of progress it’s a lot for him. Thank you.”

“I am extremely happy about x’s knowledge progression. He is sometimes using big words and trying to explain himself. I am worried about his anxiety at school which impacts his behaviour at school. Thank you for your hard work!”

“x has settled in very well at PHPRU. We are very pleased with his progress.”

“We feel very happy that x is at Forest Wood. We feel he is doing really well in the short time he has been there.”

“Fantastic school and fantastic teachers. Just wish it was until they are ready for high school rather than going to another primary school.”

 “Always kept informed, friendly and approachable.”

 “X is much happier child since attends Forest Wood school. We as parents would like a bit more about his knowledge development at school. Thank you for looking after our little treasure.”

 “We are happy that our child really likes this school. Every morning he just can’t wait for the transport. He comes back home settled, with good eye contact, so he makes good progress...”
