School Description

Heltwate School caters for pupils across the primary and secondary age range who have been identified as having either moderate or severe learning difficulties. In September 2012 the school created a sixth form known as Olympic College. It had its first intake of Year 14 students in September 2014. The majority of pupils are White British. Around a third come from a wide range of minority ethnic backgrounds. The largest minority group is of Pakistani heritage. An above-average proportion of pupils speak English as an additional language. At least 15 different languages are spoken by pupils at home. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs. Approximately a third of the pupils have an autistic spectrum condition and some pupils have physical difficulties with complex medical needs. Half the pupils are eligible for the pupil premium. This is additional funding for disadvantaged pupils in local authority care or known to be eligible for free school meals. This proportion is above the national average. There have been four changes of headship since the previous inspection in March 2011. The present headteacher and deputy headteacher were appointed in September 2013. The school does not use any alternative provision but the sixth form students attend a link course at Peterborough City College.
