School Description

Cherry Oak School caters for pupils with severe cognitive learning difficulties, speech and language difficulties and autistic spectrum disorders. The executive headteacher is the headteacher of Cherry Oak School and its federated partner Victoria Special School. There is a head of school and both schools share the same governing body. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs for severe learning difficulties, including speech and language difficulties and/or autistic spectrum disorders. Over half the pupils in the school are supported by the pupil premium, special government funding, which is well above average compared with national figures. This additional funding supports pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals or are in the care of the local authority. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups is well above average, being approximately half the population of the school. One pupil in every four speaks English as an additional language. The school has a larger than average number of pupils who enter and leave the school at times other than those normally expected. The Early Years Foundation Stage provision consists of a mixed Nursery and Reception group and all children attend full time.
