‘This is a lovely caring school and the atmosphere is so welcoming’

Getting a place for your child at Finch Woods
- All pupils at Finch Woods must have an EHCP (Education Health Care Plan).
- If you child has an existing EHCP please contact Knowsley Local Authority SEN team on 0151 443 5145 (we also can offer places to out-of borough pupils, please contact your local SEN department for advice if not a Knowsley resident)
- If your child does not have an EHCP but you are concerned about their social, emotional, mental health or behaviour difficulties please speak to your child’s School SENCO in the first instance. The school would need to apply for statutory assessment with detailed evidence of your child’s needs including educational psychology input.
This is an important time for families who are taking decisions about their child’s secondary education. Before you decide, we would encourage you to come and see for yourself all the opportunities Finch Woods Academy can offer. The Headteacher and staff will be delighted to meet you and show you how pupils benefit from the exciting surroundings and the excellent teaching and extra curriculum activities available. All staff want to work in partnership with you, as parents/ carers, to provide your child with the best possible education.
Our school is committed to helping pupils reach their potential, whatever their race, sex, religion or disability. Our commitment is to make Finch Woods Academy the best place to be educated. We want to assist you in making a very important decision for your child’s future.
We offer students more individual attention than could normally be delivered in a mainstream school and provide national curriculum programmes of study tailored to meet the particular needs and aspirations of the individual.
