Acorn Centre (Specialist Centre for Learning and Additional Needs)
Please be advised that there are NO Acorn Centre spaces available for entry in 2019 - 2020.
The Acorn Centre is a specialist centre for children with Communication and Interaction Needs (COIN) (EYFS & KS1) and Learning Difficulties/Learning and Additional Needs (LD & LAN) (KS2). We currently have 25 primary aged children on roll receiving specific learning support in our Acorn Centre and inclusive provision within our mainstream setting.
PLEASE NOTE: the decision around a LAN special school or specialist centre will depend on whether the child will benefit from mainstream teaching alongside their mainstream peers.

"Pupils in the Acorn Centre make outstanding progress because of high-quality teaching."
