Where AUTISM is our First Language


WELCOME TO THE

WOODSIDE
GROUP

Our mission is to provide a safe, secure and therapeutic environment, where children with an AUTISTIC SPECTRUM CONDITION can find enjoyment and happiness whilst accessing their own individual timetables.

Our aim is that each student reaches their full potential whether it be academic or vocational, and they leave our provision, aged 19, with a clear pathway into a life, as INDEPENDENT as their abilities allow.


Our mission is simple.

To enable young people with an ASC to independently contribute to society; embrace life long learning and achieve without a ceiling

Operation encompass.

All Woodside Group schools have become part of a new safeguarding initiative, which aims to improve outcomes for children and families affected by domestic violence and abuse. This scheme has been designed to provide early reporting to schools of any domestic abuse incidents that might have an impact on a child that attends their school. The approach, known as Operation Encompass is used in a number of other counties across the UK and is run in partnership with Local Authorities and Local Police Forces. All public agencies currently share information where there are safeguarding concerns or risk of harm to children and the Police currently share information on all incidents of domestic abuse in their city/county with the relevant local council. This information will be used to ensure the school is able to provide appropriate support to our pupils. The information will remain confidential and only shared on a strictly need-to-know basis, for example with the child's teacher(s). It will not be shared with any pupils.
