Admissions to Oak View School

Oak View School is a specialist provision catering for pupils aged 3 to 19 who have significant, severe, profound and/or multiple learning difficulties.

Our school sits within the Epping Forest School Partnership Trust.

The admitting Authority is the Local Authority, Essex County Council, so all requests must be made through the County’s Special Educational Needs Department.

Following a review of learning needs through the Educational Health Care Plan (EHCP), the local Authority will make a judgment as to where the needs of a pupil with special educational needs can be met. If the Authority feel that a pupil’s educational needs can be met within our provision they will consult with the school. If this is the case and there is a space within a suitable peer group and a space within the school’s overall capacity of 130 pupils; then the school may offer the Authority a possible placement.
