School Description

Lexden Springs provides for pupils with a wide range of complex disabilities and special educational needs. The majority have severe learning difficulties, and a significant number have profound and multiple learning needs. Many have additional special educational needs such as autistic spectrum disorders. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs or are undergoing assessments for an education, health and care plan. Pupils at Key Stage 2 to 4 are mostly taught in mixed age groups based on their ability. There are seven children in the early years provision, one of whom attends part time. New students join the sixth form from other schools, both mainstream and special. Most pupils are from White British backgrounds. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils supported through the pupil premium is well above average. The pupil premium is additional government funding provided for those pupils known to be eligible for free school meals or those looked after by the local authority. Some students in Years 13 and 14 are taught at Holly Lodge, which is the school’s additional accommodation situated about half mile away from the main site. Students in the sixth form attend a wide range of work experience placements and also attend Colchester Institute for work-related learning.
