Headteacher Welcome


Welcome to Foxwood Academy autumn term 2018 and an especially warm welcome to all of our new parents, carers and families joining the Foxwood family. 


Foxwood is a good school providing a rounded education for children and young people with special educational needs. We pride ourselves on creating an inclusive environment for all and are committed to ensuring that children and young people have access to the education and learning they deserve.  


The buildings and environment at Foxwood have had significant investment over the summer and we are pleased to open new pupil kitchens, new visitor toilets, new pupil shower rooms, new classrooms and new fencing around the senior football area. We are also pleased to tell you that we have invested further in our sensory areas and have re-carpeted large areas of the Academy. A clean, calm and purposeful environment helps our children and young people learn and stay focussed. We also believe that our children and young people deserve the best.  


Our aims for this year remain simple and rest on the simple values that have remained with Foxwood Academy for a number of years. We focus on independence, celebration, learning for life and of course education. Whilst these values run through the Academy I am also mindful of the essential partnership that Foxwood has and needs to continue to have with its parents, carers and families. Successful schools and academies meet with, talks to and listens to its families and so please can I remind you that we are always here for you and can be contacted by phone, by email, via the internet site or by using our Facebook page which was very popular last year. You know your children and young people better than anyone and so working together we can ensure that they truly are ‘learning for life’. 

I am excited to tell you that we have a variety of events happening this year including family forums, residentials, transition evenings, shows, markets and educational trips and visits. The first event will be a ‘meet the teacher’ in the coming weeks.  


We are proud of Foxwood, are proud of our children and young people and hope you enjoy our web pages.
