About Us


Forest Wood is a setting for children between the ages of 4 and 7 that have a medical condition, disability and/or early social communication and interaction difficulties, including autistic spectrum disorder. Further multi-professional assessment of the child’s needs is likely to be necessary to determine their future educational placement. The focus of this educational setting is assessment. This will provide accurate information about the child’s level of development and physical needs and will inform and facilitate future provision.


All children will have the opportunity to access an appropriate, tailored curriculum through play, one to one work and when appropriate small group work. They will work towards outcomes set in their EHCPs (broken into smaller targets in their Individual Education Plans (IEPs)) and be supported by a range of staff on site and external professionals where appropriate.


The indoor and outdoor learning environments provide a wide range of activities where children can explore and play independently, alongside others and with others. Your child’s day will be tailored specifically to their needs.
