It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Cricket Green School.  We were once described as “Like school. Only better!” and that's what we like to believe we offer to all our pupils and families.


Cricket Green is a thriving and outstanding special school, which offers learners the opportunity to grow and develop in an environment where they and their achievements are valued. Pupil well being is at the heart of all we do as we strive for all our learners to be happy, develop skills and competencies for life and grow in to secure and confident young people taking their place in society.


In 2010, 2013 and 2017 Ofsted judged us as an “Outstanding School”, praise doesn’t get any better than that but it hasn't stopped us striving to do better to continue to make Cricket Green a happy and outstandingly successful school. We surround ourselves with remarkable people and have amazing pupils! OUTSTANDING 2010 -2017 !!!“

The enthusiasm of the staff impacts positively on the pupils, who respond by being keen and eager to learn.

The headteacher, staff and governors are wholly committed to ensuring that pupils achieve the best possible outcomes for pupils, both in their academic studies and in their personal development.

Dear All


You will have heard that it is the Government’s intention that all schools should re open in September. Last Thursday I received the Guidance documents advising how we are expected to do this and what measures we need to take to do so safely.

I will work through this advice with the LA and raise any queries I have with the LA, Governors and national SEND organisations.


When we are clear about the way ahead, I will write to you all. I know the end of term is approaching but please be reassured I will continue, with the Leadership team, to prepare school throughout the summer. We will also be giving you information throughout the summer break.


It has been wonderful to see the photos and hear the stories of all our children and young people have done at home. Thank you for sending them.  

I look forward to the day when we speak in person and share our news and successes.


In the meantime stay safe and well.


Best wishes


Mrs Dawson
