School Description

Oak Lodge provides for students with a broad range of special educational needs who live in a wide, predominantly rural, catchment area. Just over a half has a formal diagnosis of autistic spectrum disorder. All have a statement of special educational needs. The school shares a campus with a local secondary school and a local authority leisure centre. In addition, the school manages the Oakmore centre. Run jointly with the secondary school, the centre provides for more capable and higher performing students, all of whom have autism and very high anxiety levels. An outreach service provides training for other schools and agencies to support students with autism. Currently, the large majority of students are boys and most are of White British heritage. The proportion of students known to be eligible for pupil premium, which provides additional funding to support pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those in the care of the local authority, is above the national average. The school has specialist school status for the arts and has gained numerous awards for different aspects of its work and provision. More recently, it has received level 1 accreditation for Rights, Respect and Responsibility.
