Consultation on joint changes to provision at Oaklands Park School and Ratcliffe School, Dawlish

Devon County Council’s Cabinet, at its meeting on 9 February 2018, resolved that the proposal to merge Oaklands Park and Ratcliffe Schools to provide a single provision across both sites for pupils aged 3-19 years be approved, which will include provision of 156 registered day places. Residential places will be merged and reduced to 35 weekly residential places from April 2018. The two schools will merge in August 2018, reopening as one Residential Special School in September 2018.

The school will provide a continuum of provision for pupils that it is currently designated to take. Pupils with communication and interaction difficulties, ASC learning difficulties and social development needs will continue to be placed in the merged school.
