School Description

The Phoenix converted to become an academy school on 1 March 2013. Prior to this, it was known as The Phoenix School. When the predecessor school was last inspected by Ofsted in May 2012, it was judged to be good. The academy provides for students who have a statement of special educational needs for complex behavioural, emotional and social difficulties. Some have mental health difficulties, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, autistic spectrum disorders and oppositional defiance disorder. Many students have additional learning difficulties. The proportion of students eligible for pupil premium funding is high. Pupil premium funding is for pupils in the care of the local authority and those known to be eligible for free school meals. Nearly all students are White British and none speak English as an additional language. In February 2014, the academy established an alternative learning centre at Eagle Hall House near Lincoln. Here, pupils who find it difficult to cope and engage in the main school are educated within a small, flexible learning environment where there is a higher staff ratio and a learning environment that is individually tailored to their needs. At present, eight students attend this provision. The Principal retired in August 2014 and became Director/Chair of the Trustees. He was a member of the Department for Education 2011 Working Party on academies. To provide consistency, the two Vice Principals have taken over the role of Acting Principals for this year. The trustees intend to appoint a permanent Principal following a staff restructuring process in the summer of 2015.
