School Description

Castle School is larger than the average area special school, and was created from five Cambridgeshire special schools in 2006. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs, mostly for autistic spectrum disorder or speech, language and communication needs. Some have severe or moderate leaning difficulties and a small number have behavioural, emotional and social difficulties, profound and multiple learning difficulties or visual impairments. A few pupils have multisensory impairments. Most pupils are White British and speak English as their first language. An above-average proportion are eligible for the pupil premium (extra funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, looked after by the local authority or from a family with a parent in the armed forces). Some older pupils attend Cambridge Regional College or the College of West Anglia for academic courses and work-related training. The school provides an outreach support service for teachers and pupils with special educational needs in local mainstream schools.
