Autism accreditation

Woodcroft has worked with pupils on the autism spectrum for over fifty years. We have been pioneers of many successful strategies during that time, taking a flexible approach that reflects our understanding that all pupils are different.

We were first accredited by the National Autistic Society in 2009 and positive provision for autism is firmly embedded across the whole school.

2019 accreditation

Woodcroft was reaccredited by the National Autistic Society in June 2019. Particular strengths included our focus on children, documentation, transition (including our transport service), multidisciplinary working and support for families.

The inspectors also highlighted community-based learning, sensory activities, assessment, the bespoke curriculum, professional development, the therapists and our excellent reputation with sending authorities.

Thanks to our pupils, parents and carers for their support during the inspection, and congratulations to the whole staff team. A copy of the full report can be downloaded here.

Autism Accreditation Excellence Award

In 2017 Woodcroft won the National Autistic Society’s Autism Accreditation Excellence Award for our transport service. You can read more about the award on our Transport page.
