Parents and carers cannot apply directly to The Woodlands because we are a Pupil Referral Unit.
The Woodlands is part of the County Durham Local Offer. The Local Offer is the package of services available in the authority for young people with SEN and their families. It is found at www.countydurhamfamilies.info.
The Woodlands is a fully inclusive place of learning, which ensures that all learners achieve their potential personally, socially, emotionally, physically and educationally. As a Pupil Referral Unit, The Woodlands supports learners from KS1 – KS4 across the whole of County Durham when they are unable to continue to attend their present school. This may be because they are permanently excluded or are on a short-term placement from their home school.
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
