Special schools provide a unique and distinctive educational environment to meet the needs of the pupils in their community. Undertaking standard tests may not be appropriate and we do not show performance data for special schools.

School Description

Oak View school provides for pupils with a wide range of difficulties. The two largest groups have severe learning difficulties and autistic spectrum disorder. A very small number of pupils have moderate learning difficulties and a small but growing number have profound and multiple learning difficulties, particularly in the lower school. Many pupils throughout the school have severely challenging behaviour. The vast majority of pupils have a statement of special educational needs. There are twice as many boys as girls, which is typical for schools of this type. There are about twice the average proportion of pupils from minority ethnic families, many speaking English as an additional language. Pupils from a White British heritage make up about half of the pupil population. An average proportion of pupils are eligible for the pupil premium. This is additional government funding to support the achievement of certain groups of pupils, including those known to be eligible for free school meals and those who are looked after by the local authority. There are 11 children in the Early Years Foundation Stage. The number of pupils has increased since the previous inspection, and a temporary building has been installed to increase the accommodation available. The school has links with Epping College and Harlow College for students who will move on there after they have left school, and provide additional learning and work experience opportunities for some students at Roding Valley High School and Well Gate Farm. The school has recently been re-accredited by the National Autistic Society.
