Woodlands is an extra provision unit within The Oldham Academy North that provides individual support for pupils who are finding it difficult in the classroom environment. Woodlands provides a safe space where pupils receive a positive and supportive 1-2-1 experience in order to improve their progress that is suitable for their individual needs.
Woodlands prides itself with the following aims and objectives:
- Improve inclusion by supporting our most vulnerable pupils at times when they would otherwise be failing to learn
- Provide flexible and part-time provision for pupils who are having particular difficulties in the majority of their lesson
- Contribute substantially to a whole-school inclusion policy linked to Additional Needs and the child’s wellbeing,
- Serve as a reintegration platform for pupils who have low attendance or who are returning to education.
My role as a Learning Support Mentor is to work with identified pupils to nurture, support, champion and empower them to overcome barriers to learning and to achieve their full potential.

We are about to start on another growing project, we have been awarded a box of “Grow Wild” seed kits and the students will be sowing these around parts of the academy. In order to do this, we will need some rakes. If you have a rake and wouldn’t mind us borrowing it for this project I would be really grateful, please let me know.
