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

School Description

Nortonthorpe Hall School provides for boys, from across the whole of the Kirklees area, who have statements of special educational needs relating to their behaviour, emotional and social difficulties. About a third of pupils have been identified as having additional learning difficulties, particularly relating to speech, language and communication difficulties. Pupils can be admitted at any time during the school year and at any age from seven years upwards. A large majority of pupils are known to be eligible for the pupil premium, well above the national average. The pupil premium in this school provides additional funding for pupils who are entitled to free school meals and for those in the care of the local authority. Prior to the previous inspection, a senior leadership team had been seconded into the school by the local authority. This team has remained in place over the last three years until the end of the spring term, at which time the executive headteacher retired. A member of the leadership team had just taken up post as acting headteacher at the time of this inspection. Following a staffing review, plans are well advanced to make permanent appointments to all senior posts.
