Cherry Trees Community School is situated in South Staffordshire in the large village of Wombourne. It is within a few miles of Wolverhampton, Dudley, Stourbridge and Bridgnorth.
The school provides education for children aged 2-11years with a range of special needs, autism, challenging needs, learning disabilities and those whose needs cannot be met in a mainstream school. Each pupil has an Individual Education Plan [IEP] which ensures a pupil’s personal educational needs are identified and met.
As well as all pupils having access to the National Curriculum they may benefit from other curriculums and approaches offered in school. These include developing interaction skills, speech and language skills and using approaches such as a multisensory one.
Outside agencies and professionals are consulted on a regular basis and school staff are all involved in continued professional development to ensure they are up to date with new initiatives. Staff work closely with mainstream schools to provide inclusion programmes which have enabled some pupils to eventually access mainstream education on a full time basis.
