School Description

Lydgate School admits pupils with complex needs, the complexity of which has increased significantly over the past five years. Admissions are for pupils with a vast range of impairments, including co morbidity, physical, medical and emotional difficulties. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs. The school refers to Reception to Year 8 as lower school, and Years 9 to 11 as upper school. The school does not use any alternative provision, nor does it use early entry for GCSE. Children in the early years attend full time. The school has introduced a school-wide nurture approach to managing behaviour and focuses on pupils learning in an active way that encourages use of their senses. Two thirds of the pupils are White British. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils supported by pupil premium funding is above the national average. The pupil premium is additional government funding. Pupils are drawn mostly from south of Kirklees including the areas of Holme Valley, Colne Valley, Holmfirth, Huddersfield, Honley and Shelley.
