Support — introduction

Woodcroft recognises the importance of support before, during and after a child’s placement. This section outlines some of the ways that our experienced staff team can enhance and support each pupil’s education.

Supporting pupils and parents

A working partnership with parents is essential to support pupil learning. We welcome visits from parents and aim to keep them fully informed of pupil progress and school events. Parents receive day-to-day information and support in a variety of ways, including telephone contact, pupil diaries and home/school books. Social events, the parents’ support group, a parent forum, workshops and regular bulletins and/or newsletters all help to provide closer links between home and school.

A number of commonly requested and statutory policies can be found on the Policies page in this section. In accordance with independent school regulations, the number of any complaints registered under the formal procedure last year are available from the head teacher on request.
