School Description

Applefields School caters for students with multiple learning difficulties, autism spectrum and specific learning difficulties. Some students’ special educational needs range from moderate to severe and profound learning difficulties, and many have multiple learning difficulties. All students have a statement of special educational needs. The school is the City of York local authority’s community co-educational day special school for secondaryaged students with a wide range of needs. Most students transfer from the local primary special school in York and a small number are from mainstream primary and secondary schools. The school makes provision for students from York and the surrounding area of North Yorkshire and the East Riding of Yorkshire. The Satellite provides specialist provision for Applefields School students who are based full-time at Manor Church of England Academy, a mainstream secondary school in Nether Poppleton, York. The provision is for students in Key Stages 3 and 4. There are 16 students from Applefields who are based at the academy full time. They are taught by staff who are Applefields School staff and who work exclusively at the Satellite. The school is situated in York and students are transported in from the surrounding areas. The proportion of disadvantaged students, those supported through the pupil premium, is above the national average. The pupil premium is additional government funding to support those students known to be eligible for free school meals and those who are looked after by the local authority.
