Our Vision

Woodlands Academy

At Woodlands Academy our vision is:

• To ensure our pupils are prepared academically, emotionally and socially for their future both within Post-16 education, and within the world of work.

• To develop their resilience, mental well-being, social skills and academic knowledge required to be active and worthwhile members of their local community and wider society.

To ensure we achieve our vision, we provide the following:


• A bespoke curriculum offer which supports the engagement of pupils, and enables them to achieve their potential through the range of qualifications available.

• A range of KS4 option subjects to support pupils’ engagement and ability, ranging from Entry Level, Level 1, Level 2 and GCSE accreditations.

• Targeted interventions in Literacy and Numeracy to assist pupils to access the entire curriculum offer available at Woodlands Academy.

• Links developed with neighbouring mainstream school to enable gifted & talented pupils to access additional GCSE qualifications where appropriate.

• Teaching staff use their enthusiasm and detailed subject knowledge, as well as a range of teaching strategies to motivate and engage pupils in learning.

• Teaching staff foster positive relationships with pupils and foster a supportive ‘can do’ learning environment.

Emotional and Social

• Every pupil is assigned a keyworker, a member of staff available to support them and to communicate frequently with home. This ensures pupils feel supported and have a member of staff who they can approach at any time.

• Opportunities to take part in group activities; inside and outside of school through different subject areas, for example: school football team & House activities.

• Access to a school counsellor and music therapy.

• Whole school restorative practice approach; supporting pupils to be able to regulate their emotions and communicate any difficulties.

• Small school community; staff know pupils well, and are able to build positive and personalised relationships in order to support pupils’ individual needs.

Mental Well-being

• Woodlands Academy is a positive school; we look to celebrate pupils’ achievements and support pupils to build their own self-confidence.

• Staff know pupils extremely well; they are able to recognise when pupils require additional support and ensure they receive this immediately.

• Our Learning for Life Curriculum provides information for pupils to access mental health support from outside agencies if required in the future.

• We have links with a number of outside agencies, and provide our own counselling within school, to help support pupils mental well-being.

Working in the Community

• We encourage pupils to contribute to the local community for example; volunteering through Duke of Edinburgh at Spilsby New Life Centre, supporting with local projects such as volunteering at Snipe Dales as part of Land-based studies.

• Pupils are given opportunities to raise money for local and national charities, for example, MacMillan Bake sale and genes for genes day.

• Opportunities to take part in local events; Light up Spilsby project.
