Welcome to our website where you will find a great deal of information about Cherry Oak School, the work we do, our rich and creative curriculum and the exciting opportunities we provide our pupils. Class teachers will be using the website to communicate directly with parents. We hope you enjoy this new interaction.
Cherry Oak is a special day school for pupils aged 4 to 11 years who have special education needs and/or disabilities arising from cognition and learning difficulties including severe learning difficulties and speech, communication and language difficulties. We are part of a Federation with Victoria School and College which gives us many opportunities for collaborative work and sharing good practice.
We are very proud of our fantastic pupils and are very fortunate to have such a dedicated, skilled and creative staff team which includes teachers, classroom support staff, administrative support staff, ICT staff, site staff, lunchtime supervisors and bus guides. Pupils are supported by NHS health and therapy services.
Judged as ‘outstanding’ in all areas at our last Ofsted inspection, we are constantly striving to make further improvements to benefit our pupils and the broader school community. Every child truly does matter at Cherry Oak and is at the heart of all we do.
I hope you enjoy our site and look forward to hearing from you. If you have any comments or suggestions, then please don't hesitate to contact us.
