Cherry Oak School

THE SCHOOL:

 

Cherry Oak School is a primary school for children with severe learning difficulties and speech, language and communication difficulties, located at Selly Oak in the South of Birmingham.

 

Cherry Oak is part of a federation with Victoria School which is located in Northfield, also in the south of the city. Victoria is a special school providing for pupils aged 2 – 19 years with significant complex needs including a combination of physical, sensory, medical and cognition and learning needs. 

 

The Federation's mission is  ‘Working Together for Success’. With this in mind, we strive for sustained improvement through shared learning,  resources,  expertise and achieving together.

 

THE PUPILS:

 

 

Presently at Cherry Oak School, there are 111 children on roll.

 

Children are referred by the local authority and usually admitted in September each year. Some pupils are admitted at other times during the year.

 

All children have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) for a range of complex learning difficulties.

We have ten classes in our school ;
