School Description

Acorn School has been established to care for pupils who face challenges with their social or emotional well-being or mental health. All the 18 pupils currently in the school are funded by Devon local authority. Since the previous standard inspection in October 2016, there have been two additional inspections to evaluate the premises and consider a material change. These took place in January and June 2019. Following the approval of the Department for Education (DfE) for changes to the school’s registration details, the school relocated to its current location in Winkleigh, Devon. This now accommodates all pupils on the same site, including the separate primary and secondary parts of the school. All the pupils currently on the roll have joined the school since the relocation of its premises. The primary part of the school opened in April 2019. The secondary part opened in September 2019. There currently are no pupils in key stage 4. The school uses one alternative provider. This is Horwood Coombe Forest School.

This school is independently managed and its admission criteria may be selective. There is no set catchment area as pupils are admitted from a wide variety of postcodes and, in the case of boarding schools, from outside the UK.
