Learning for all

We have a Special Educational Needs facility for eight Key Stage 2 pupils with an Autistic Spectrum Disorder combined with speech and language communication difficulties.

A diverse environment

Our woodland playground,large playing field and Forest School site allows children to engage with the rich natural diversity of the environment to ignite curiosity and inspire.


We provide education for children between the ages of two and eleven in a creative way that inspires and motivates children to learn. Our motto is that at Churchwood everyone can; everyone can read, everyone can write, everyone can be numerate. As such, we have high expectations of each child and we pride ourselves on an ethos that promotes learning in a caring, supportive environment. We respect each child as an individual, guiding and supporting them to reach their full potential. Through high quality teaching and learning our children develop knowledge and skills giving them confidence, independence, determination and ambition which will shape their futures. Please contact us if you would like the opportunity to experience life at Churchwood first–hand: seeing is believing!
