School Description

Millgate is a community residential special school for students with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties. All students on the roll of the school have a statement of special educational needs or an education, health and care plan. The school has a residential unit, which is open from Sunday to Thursday. The majority of students are eligible for the pupil premium, which is above the national average. This is additional funding for students known to be eligible for free school meals and children looked after by the local authority. The proportion of students from minority ethnic groups is below average. The majority of students have had a disrupted education before entering Millgate. Many students have been excluded from their previous schools. Since November 2011 Millgate has been part of a federation with Keyham Lodge School, another special school in Leicester City. The schools share one executive headteacher and one governing body. Millgate is run on a day-to-day basis by a head of school who has been in this post since early 2013. Since the last integrated inspection of the school in 2013, there has been a significant reorganisation of staffing. Several staff are new to the school or new to their posts. The school has been part of the Building Schools for the Future initiative and this work is now almost complete. The school uses alternative providers and off-site provision for appropriate courses. These are: Triple Skills; Axlr8; Gaz Autos and Markfield alpaca farm.
