School Description

This oversubscribed school provides for pupils with complex learning difficulties, all of whom have a statement of special educational needs. Although the majority of pupils have moderate or severe learning difficulties, an increasing proportion have medical needs, severe behavioural, emotional or social difficulties, or autistic spectrum disorders. Nearly all pupils are White British and there are significantly more boys than girls. There are very few children in the Early Years Foundation Stage, and they are taught in a mixed Reception and Key Stage 1 class. The proportion of pupils who are eligible for the pupil premium, which provides additional funding for children in local authority care and for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, is above average. A significant number of pupils, especially at Key Stage 3, are admitted to the school other than at the usual times of admission. The school does not use any other location to provide additional education for its pupils. Since the last inspection, the school has converted to a foundation school and taken on trust status in partnership with 13 local primary and secondary schools. The governing body has been reconstituted accordingly. The number of pupils on roll has also increased significantly as has the number of pupils referred with medical needs. The school’s outdoor learning environment contains new all-weather sports pitches, a sensory garden, an allotment and an area for environmental science. The school has gained the Recognition of Quality Award for Careers Education and Guidance.
