School Description

This special school caters for primary-aged boys and girls who have a diagnosis of autism and social communication difficulties, alongside additional needs including significant speech and language difficulties, developmental delay and complex learning needs. The school has grown by 50% since its previous inspection. School accommodation has been extended and refurbished since the previous inspection. This work is not yet complete. All the pupils have statements of special educational needs. Very few speak verbally and almost all are working at levels below the National Curriculum. Children in the Reception Year attend full time. A very high proportion of pupils are from minority ethnic backgrounds, most of these have Black African heritage. At over 70%, the proportion of pupils known to be eligible for pupil premium funding is much higher than the national average. This is additional government funding to support pupils who are looked after or who are known to be eligible for free school meals. Details of any differences between their attainment and progress and those of others will not be reported. This is because individual differences are large and because individuals might be identified, as numbers in any year group are very small. Just over three quarters of pupils are boys. Leaders have reorganised the school’s staffing structure this academic year. A newly-created post of assistant headteacher has not yet been filled on a permanent basis. Several staff, including three key stage and subject leaders, have left the school, to move on to other roles very recently. Almost half the teachers in the school are on supply or short term contracts. Three of these have been at the school for less than three months. Arrangements to fill a few vacancies in leadership roles, such as leaders for Key Stages 1 and 2, are in process.
