Welcome to our Academy from the Governing Body


Vision Statement


Our vision is to prepare our children for life. We foster learning, remembering and applying for young people and adults with special educational needs (SEN) regardless of background and starting points.

In our Academy, our Nature is to Nurture: Staff, parents and carers collaborate. We work towards the common goal of every student excelling and making progress. We assist families to deepen their knowledge regarding ways they can support their child.



The following four core values underpin our work at Foxwood Academy.



Our Academy has enthusiastic, dedicated and empathetic staff with a passion for teaching students with additional needs. We provide a supportive and safe environment where every student will make progress academically and emotionally. We ensure that every student’s individual needs are understood by all and met by providing enjoyable learning opportunities that are relevant, accessible and inspirational. We have a strong continued personal development program for staff and a tailored curriculum for our students.



We encourage our students to become as independent as possible in all areas of life. Students are engaged in all decisions to support their development and enable them to identify, explore and realise their potential. All families are supported to make informed decisions about progression after their time at Foxwood Academy. All our students are treated with dignity and respect upholding fundamental British Values in order that they can make a successful transition into adult life.


Learning for Life

We aim to prepare our students for adulthood. At Foxwood Academy we provide a safe and nurturing space to support our students and young people throughout their education.

We enable our students to leave us with the necessary skills to be happy, independent citizens and with the ability to continue to make positive contributions to society. We have a bespoke ‘Preparation for Adulthood’ curriculum.



Individuality is valued, diversity is celebrated and a strong sense of self-worth imparted. We want to create positive memories for our students. School is the best years of your life. Foxwood provides opportunities to celebrate the achievements and talents of all of our students, through residential trips, after school clubs and the arts.





We aim to develop the skills of every student and equip them for lifelong learning through a broad and balanced education, underpinned by our four key values: Education, Independence, Learning for Life and Celebration.


The drivers of these values, what you would see when you walk around our Academy are children recalling and remembering what they have covered and experienced, learning new skills, practising those skills, applying the new learning and then mastering or overlearning.





We are an outward looking Academy.  We are part of the Notts Schools Trust (NST) and work very closely with our local family of schools and the special schools across Nottinghamshire and beyond. We look to share with, and learn from the experts around us.
