Castle Wood School  


Castle Wood is a large broad spectrum special primary school (4-11 years) with 156 pupils over 19 classes,

We were formed in April 2008, as the result of the amalgamation of two special schools and moved to a new site and purpose-built premises in September 2010, co-located with Moat House Primary School.

Since September 2019 our school has been increasing. The school has been carefully planned to enable access for all pupils and we have purpose built facilities, such as; a hydrotherapy pool, soft play, forest school and outdoor learning spaces. 

Castle Wood admits pupils with a wide range of special educational needs and disabilities (cognition and learning). We have pupils with profound and multiple needs, severe and moderate learning difficulties. We also admit pupils with autistic spectrum condition (communication and interaction) and additional learning difficulties. 


Our school vision and ethos is

Together, children first… 

  • Uniqueness – we embrace and accept everyone is an individual with different needs, interests and styles and Castle Wood will effectively engage with the broad spectrum of need; 
  • Collaboration – we will all work together towards improving the life chances of all pupils and Castle Wood will engage with external organisations to ensure this; 
  • Learning – we know that every experience increases our knowledge and skills physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially and Castle Wood will lead the way in specialist education.
