Newark Orchard School’s British Values Statement

Newark Orchard School opened in 1996 and is an Area Special School across two sites. The 3-14  Department is on Appleton Gate in the centre of Newark and the 14-19 Department is based on the London Road at Balderton. We also have a Specialist Autism Hub which is based on Town site.  This new and exciting development opened at Easter 2015. We offer ten specialist places for pupils who have an ASD diagnosis and either a statement or Education Health Care plan.

At our last Ofsted inspection we were judged very recently to be a ‘school which requires improvement’  We are already working hard to address the areas requiring improvement and continue to build on our strengths  We are determined to be judged as ‘good’ as soon as possible.  We are fully committed to ‘Individual Growth for Individual People’.  We have a very experienced and skilled staff and we pride ourselves on our abilities to construct Individual Education Programmes and personalise the curriculum to meet the requirements of young people with special educational needs and enable them to access their curriculum entitlement.  We are delighted to work with schools across Newark to enhance their special educational needs provision.  The school is represented on the steering group for The Together for Newark partnership and as part of this has co-produced a support package for schools around Autism friendly practice. Included in this is training, information and a Kitemark for schools to work towards based on the Autism Education Trust standards recognised by the DFE. We are happy to offer advice and support wherever requested.  We work with a whole range of different professionals and enjoy a close partnership with them.  We are totally committed to helping to maintain appropriate provision for individual pupils, wherever they go to school.
