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

All the pupils have, or are being assessed for, statements of special educational needs. All the pupils have either profound and multiple learning difficulties or severe learning difficulties. About a quarter of the pupils also have autistic spectrum disorders. Many have physical and or sensory impairment. About a quarter are visually impaired. Over three quarters of the pupils are from a wide range of minority ethnic groups. Almost half are of Indian heritage. Most pupils are at early stages of spoken language. Over half speak English as an additional language. At just over a third, the proportion of pupils who are known to be eligible for pupil premium funding is slightly above the national average. This is additional funding for specific groups of pupils, in this case, those who are looked after by the local authority or who are known to be eligible for free school meals. A very few pupils are registered part-time at the school and part-time at Hope Hamilton mainstream school. All other pupils, including those in the sixth form, are full-time at the school. The proportion of pupils who start at the school after the Reception class is much higher than in most other schools. There are currently very few pupils in the Early Years Foundation Stage. The deputy headteacher started at the school in August 2013. The school is due to move to a new building, currently under construction, in October 2014. Along with several other special schools, Nether Hall School is now part of the Well Trust. It is not an academy and is still funded by, and accountable to, the local authority.
