Hello and welcome to Woodstar School
We are an independent Department for Education approved special school in the London Borough of Haringey. We are rated Good by Ofsted (February 2017).
We cater for children aged 3 to 11 whose primary needs are related to physical development with associated difficulties such as moderate or severe learning difficulties, communication delay or disorders or sensory processing.
We believe strongly that the best way to foster a child’s true potential is by addressing all their developmental needs and that all activities provide exciting opportunities for children to gain functional life skills.
We deliver this through our Learning for Living active curriculum. This brings together classroom learning with a range of integrated therapies and project work to support each child’s development across all aspects of their life.
We are committed to offering our pupils the best opportunities to suit their learning needs. For some children, this may include a part-time dual placement with a mainstream school or nursery.
We are very proud of our school and the achievements our children make. Our ultimate aim is for every pupil to achieve as much independence as possible to that they can live a fulfilled life.
Finn Emmerson, Head of Woodstar School
