Welcome to Wood Bank 


A very warm welcome to our Wood Bank School website.  Wood Bank is one of three generic special schools within the Local Authority of Calderdale and caters for over 70 pupils aged 4-11, with an extensive range of Special Educational Needs including; Profound Multiple Learning Difficulties, Severe and Moderate Learning Difficulties, Physical and Medical Disabilities, Autistic Spectrum Disorder and Multi Sensory Impairments.  

I have the privilege of leading a dedicated team of specialist Staff and Governors who are committed to ensuring that our children have access to high quality education and that their holistic needs are fully met.  Our children are truly a source of inspiration, demonstrating that despite the many challenges they face on a daily basis, they can engage in and progress with their personalised learning through enthusiasm, determination and perseverance. 

As a school we promote inclusion for all and present a strong outward facing profile, working closely with our families, multi-agency professionals and members of the local community to achieve this.  I hope you find our website to be both insightful and informative, should you require any further information or paper copies of any of the information provided on our website, please contact our school office where our administrators will direct you to the most appropriate member of staff to help you  with your inquiry.  Enjoy the rest of your visit today!
