Disadvantaged pupil barriers to success

Pupils who attend Woodlands Academy have previously had negative experiences of education. They have low self-esteem and self-worth, not seeing themselves as learners. Having lower emotional literacy skills than their peers within school may mean they do not come to school ready to learn. They require a lot of support to develop these areas which allow them to access the learning environment and curriculum.
