Willow Dene School meets the needs of children with a wide range of complex special educational needs. We offer our families support to enable their children to thrive and enjoy learning and living. Our teachers, who work as part of an extensive multi-disciplinary team of specialists, are exceptional practitioners. Together they plan learning pathways that ensure children are given the best opportunities to flourish and become independent. We believe that we are a school of enablement. Our environment is carefully crafted to support and stimulate children to develop their curiosity about the world around them and to communicate their feelings and thoughts. We work closely with our families, providing support and care to enable everyone to feel both secure and confident.
Willow Dene is now operating over two sites with Toucan, our specialist provision for two year olds, and children in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, based at our Swingate Lane site. Our newly refurbished Oakmere Road site is the new location for our Key Stage 3 children. This new site offers a high quality learning environment for our older children, building on the enabling environments at Swingate Lane, whilst extending experiences and realising new possibilities.
