Something Special

Thursday, 1 March 2018

Today, CBeebies aired a an episode on “Pairs” on Something Special. We thought we were seeing double because the episode, filmed at Cherry Oak School before Christmas was all about our two pairs of twins: 2 pupils and 2 staff. You can watch Justin and Mr Tumble and our very own Cherry Oak stars on catch up! Enjoy!

Christmas Play

Thursday, 14 December 2017

Neither rain nor snow can stop the Cherry Oak Christmas Show. The rehearsal is in full swing and Belle and the Beast are looking suitably beautiful and beastly! After being postponed because of the snow, our Christmas Play will now be on next Tuesday and Wednesday 19 and 20 December 2017 at 10am.

The Christmas Show is coming soon….

That much-loved classic: Beauty and the Beast will be performed by our Cherry Oak pupils at the annual Christmas Show. I am really looking forward to it!

Spooky Halloween

Friday, 10 November 2017

October 31 was Halloween and many of our Cherry Oak School pupils (and staff)  dressed up in spooky Halloween costumes and played tricks on unsuspecting staff and pupils!

Some of our parents are really good at ghoulish make-up. Thank you for making it a fun day.

Parent/Teacher evening

Friday, 10 November 2017

Despite heavy traffic and inclement weather, it was wonderful to see so many parents and carers in attendance at Cherry Oak’s Parent/Teacher evening on Tuesday 7 November 2017. What a delight it was to meet so many of you and some of the brothers and sisters too!

Effective education relies on a strong partnership between a child’s family and their school. We value your input, ideas and concerns and trust that we can work together to share priorities learning targets and agree consistent approaches to support your young person’s learning.

October update

Sunday, 18 October 2015

It has been an excellent half-term at Cherry Oak. We had a ‘critical friend’ visit for our Arts Mark application. The report back was very complimentary and celebrated all the arts provision that our pupils have the opportunity to be involved in. Our School Improvement Partner visit celebrated the achievements and outcomes for our pupils for last year. A copy of our data report can be found on our website under Parents; Policies and Documents: Results. We are very proud of the achievements of all our pupils. Work has also continued on our expansion project. Below are some recent photos of the project. Wishing you all a restful half-term at the end of next week. Justine

Welcome back!

Wednesday, 9 September 2015

We welcomed back our pupils this week after what has been a very busy summer at Cherry Oak. We are delighted that our building expansion project has continued to make good progress. Pupils enjoyed their lunches this week cooked from our brand new kitchen and eaten in our extended hall. At the back of school we can really see how the building is going to look and I was very lucky to have a bird’s eye view from the roof. We are looking forward to another successful term at Cherry Oak! Justine
