School Description

This school makes provision for pupils with physical difficulties and complex medical needs. Since the last inspection there has been an increase in the number of pupils with profound and multiple learning difficulties. All, except for a very few children undergoing assessment, have a statement of special educational needs. There is residential provision for up to six pupils. It is used flexibly and each year group has access to boarding on different weeks. During the inspection there were six Nursery and Reception aged children in the residential provision. The proportions of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds, including those from families where English is spoken as an additional language, are above average. These pupils are represented across all the disability and special educational needs groups in the school. An above-average proportion of pupils are known to be eligible for pupil premium funding, which is extra government funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals among others. The school does make use of alternative schools and locations to provide education for its pupils from time to time, but no such activity was going on during the inspection. Penn Hall provides outreach support to mainstream schools across the City of Wolverhampton in providing support for pupils with physical difficulties. The school has a wide range of awards including Enhanced Healthy Schools Status, ‘Go 4 It’ Award, Arts Mark Gold Award, IT Mark and Investors in People.
