We are a very happy community and aim to offer our families support to enable children to thrive and enjoy living and learning. Willow Dene School meets the needs of children with a wide range of complex special educational needs. Our teachers are exceptional practitioners who work as part of an extensive multi-disciplinary team of specialists. Together they plan learning pathways that ensure children are given the best opportunities to thrive and become independent. We are a school of enablement. Our environment is designed to stimulate and support children to build on their curiosity about the world around them and to communicate their thoughts and feelings. We work in close partnership with families, providing care and support to enable everyone to feel confident and secure

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 children in Key Stage 3 are based at our newly refurbished Oakmere Road site. This new site provides a high quality learning environment for our older children, which builds on the enabling environments at Swingate Lane, whilst extending experiences and realising new possibilities.
