About Us

Woodlands is a primary pupil referral unit providing support for children experiencing significant social, emotional or behavioural difficulties in their mainstream primary school. Children may be supported by outreach or by attendance at Woodlands.

We take children from maintained primary schools in the Wycombe district but occasionally support pupils from Aylesbury or Amersham according to availability of placements and needs. We have very small classes, normally with a maximum of eight children: each class typically has one teacher and at least one learning support assistant. Staff also go out to mainstream schools to support children in that environment. Children normally attend Woodlands for two days a week and stay at their usual school for the other three days. A placement generally lasts for a maximum of three terms.
