Oak Tree School will provide a safe and happy learning environment for 150 learners with complex needs, including Social, Emotional and Mental Health and/or Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnoses, from Year 1 to Year 13.
Maiden Erlegh Trust, as the admissions authority of Oak Tree School, must comply with its SEN duties, these are set out in legislation and in the SEND Code of Practice. Where the local authority has carried out a statutory assessment and decided to issue an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP), it will issue a draft plan to parents. Parents can request the local authority to name their preferred choice of school in their child’s EHCP. However, the final decision on the school to be named rests with the local authority responsible for maintaining the plan.
Oak Tree School is due to open in September 2023. Our statement of provision can be found below.
