Special schools provide a unique and distinctive educational environment to meet the needs of the pupils in their community. Undertaking standard standard tests may not be appropriate and we do not show performance data for special schools.

School Description

The school provides education and care for disabled pupils and for pupils with a wide range of special educational needs, the vast majority of whom have a statement of special educational need. Many pupils who attend have complex needs. Approximately 40 per cent of pupils who attend have autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) approximately a quarter profound and multiple learning difficulties and a further third have severe learning difficulties. Many also have a range of medical difficulties and all have communication difficulties. The vast majority of pupils who attend the school come from families of White British heritage, with a small number from minority ethnic groups. A larger than average proportion of pupils is eligible for support through the pupil premium, which provides additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those in the care of the local authority. The school has a range of awards and accreditations including the National Autistic Society Accreditation, Specialist School status for Communication and Interaction, Basic Skills Quality Mark, and Primary and Secondary Arts Award. The school is in the process of moving to a new location which they will share with students from another special school. Currently, sixth-form students already attend school at the new site. Since the last inspection, the school has been subject to an unusually high level of staff absence due to accident and illness. At the time of the inspection, the deputy headteacher had taken on the role of acting headteacher and the assistant headteacher was acting as her deputy. Four out of 13 permanent members of teaching staff were also absent.
