Dear All, 

It was wonderful on Monday 8th to welcome all pupils and staff back to our school community. There was clearly a lot of excitement as well as a few anxieties. Over the week we have seen pupils contentedly socialise with their friends,

re-engage with their teachers and attend lessons in person. Those who were not in school during lockdown were very much missed and I am delighted that we are beginning to resume some sense of 'normality'.

We continue to implement measures to keep our environment as safe as possible. Since Christmas this has included testing for staff and more recently for secondary aged pupils. The purpose of this testing is to identify asymptomatic carriers of Covid-19. The government is encouraging staff, secondary aged pupils and families to test twice weekly, and for this to become a habit as we move out of this pandemic. We would encourage you to develop the habit of testing with your young person, as far as is possible. 

Today we have sent home with our KS3, 4 & 5 pupils, everything you need to implement home testing. In the links below you will be able to access advice and videos to support the process.

All staff at Cricket Green will continue with home testing, both across primary and secondary phases. We will also continue to put in plan some terms events such as Red Nose Day, Zoom Parents Evening & Spring Bonnet Parade!

We all hope this finds you and your families well. Stay safe.

With best wishes

"Like school... only better!"

Welcome to CGS!

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 !!!
