School Description

Chesnut Lodge Special School provides education for pupils aged 2 to16 with a wide range of physical disabilities; medical and increasingly complex learning needs, including profound and multiple learning difficulties. Pupils’ skills on entry are below the level expected for their chronological age. Pupils are drawn from the Halton area and some from Warrington. Pupils join at any stage in their school life but most start in the Nursery, with some attending on a part-time basis from mainstream schools. The Early Years Foundation Stage consists of a Nursery class that provides for children who will remain at Chesnut Lodge Special School and for children who will attend other primary schools. Nearly all pupils are of White British backgrounds and none speaks English as an additional language. The proportion of students for whom the school receives pupil premium funding (additional funding allocated by the government for certain groups of pupils, in this case, those who are known to be eligible for free school meals and who are looked after by the local authority) is above average. The school has Arts Mark Gold, Full International School Award, Silver Kite Mark for School Games, Enhanced Healthy School status, and is an accredited expert centre for global learning. The school provides an outreach service and hosts the local assistive technology service. The school provides help and support for pupils with physical disabilities who attend local schools in the county.
