Birchwood School has a great learning environment. The staff are dedicated and compassionate, and work hard to ensure that the children’s needs are met in a way that allows them to challenge themselves enabling them to learn and grow.

External Practitioner

Birchwood is a nurturing and supportive school. Their focus is to try and understand the children’s individual needs, which will help children feel safe, valued and secure. This will also reassure families their child is in a caring environment.
The staff are very welcoming to outside professionals and work together as a team. The school value therapy and liaise closely with the Art therapist. The therapist’s professional opinions and suggestions are acknowledged and taken into account, especially when working around the child. It is a pleasure working in Birchwood.

Art Therapist

Since my son has been attending Birchwood Children’s Services I have seen a massive improvement in his mental health and academic learning. He has been eager to attend every day and the staff are encouraging and supportive to the whole family.


Birchwood has a very calm and friendly atmosphere. Children are very engaged and happy in their environment and have good relationships with the staff they work with

Our son has never been so happy at school.

I really like the school’s approach of being person centred. My daughter is very happy and settled and as a parent that matters.
