School Description

Treetops School converted to become an academy school on 1 April 2017. When its predecessor school, also called Treetops School, was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be outstanding overall. At the same time that it converted to become an academy, the school also became the founding member of the Treetops Learning Community, a multi-academy trust. There are currently no other schools in the trust. However, it is anticipated that a new free school, to provide similar education to the existing school, will open on a neighbouring site in September 2021. Treetops School is a large special school for pupils with learning difficulties. The school provides both for pupils who have moderate learning difficulties and for those with autism spectrum disorder and associated learning difficulties and developmental delay. An increasing proportion of pupils have severe learning disabilities. The school is arranged in two separate pathways, one for pupils with moderate learning difficulties and one for pupils with autism spectrum disorder. Pupils who follow Inspection report: Treetops School 11–12 February 2020 4 the autism spectrum disorder pathway have severe communication difficulties and/or developmental delay. The school follows a particular approach to learning, known as ‘ABA’ (applied behaviour analysis). Pupils on the autism spectrum disorder pathway are taught using an approach known as ‘VB’ (verbal behaviour). The school provides information about these approaches on its website. The school’s long-standing headteacher stepped down from the post in July 2019. He continues to work for the multi-academy trust on a part-time basis. The school’s current headteacher took up his post in September 2019. All pupils have an education, health and care plan (EHCP). The school does not use alternative provision.
