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.
