Headteacher’s Welcome – Mr Todd Baines, Acting Headteacher

Welcome to our website, we hope this gives you a good introduction to our school.

Pinewood School Academy Trust is a specialist SEN setting, for pupils with Learning Difficulties, Autism and Speech, Language and Communication needs.

We place successful relationships at the heart of what we do and visitors often remark on the positive atmosphere and interactions between pupils and staff at the school.  Pupils tell us they feel safe, supported and cared for at Pinewood and they know how to ask for help.

We care deeply for each individual pupil and want them to be as successful as possible in all that they do.   Our curriculum, including our extra-curricular opportunities ensures our pupils will gain the confidence to be more independent, make positive contributions to their community and excel in their further education.  As well as traditional academic subject skills, we ensure that communication, health and wellbeing, self-regulation and safe exposure to risk are taught to give pupils the ability to make informed decisions for their future.   

We value the importance of learning outside of the classroom to both consolidate and make learning real.  We regularly make use of trips, visits, residentials within our local area and beyond.

Please get in touch if you would like to find out more.

Todd Baines, Acting Headteacher

Build Update 2 – May 2024

It’s now May and work has continued steadily on the temporary accommodation site. The groundworks are now almost complete with a level surface having been prepared ready for the delivery of the temporary building modules in the next few weeks.

By the end of May, the buildings should have been erected and work will begin on the fit-out.

The builders have their own ‘village’ which is secured off from the main school site for safety reasons. The gaps in the hoarding around the site are deliberate to allow students to watch the progress and prepare for the change that’s coming from September when we move in.

Progress on the temporary school site as of May 2024
