School Description

The John Fielding Community is a small special school for pupils with severe to profound multiple learning difficulties. It is part of the Boston Learning Network. An increasing number of pupils also have autistic-spectrum disorders and complex medical problems. A small number of pupils with moderate learning difficulties have joined the school later in their school careers. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs. There are only very few in the Early Years Foundation Stage. Some pupils take part in lessons at St Mary’s Roman Catholic Primary School and sixth formers attend Boston College one day a week. A higher-than-average proportion of pupils are known to be eligible for the pupil premium (extra funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, looked after by the local authority or with a parent in the armed forces). The majority of pupils are from a White British Background and speak English as their first language. However, there are a growing number of pupils who speak other languages. The local authority pays for an outreach teacher at the school to support pupils with special educational needs in mainstream primary and some secondary schools. The school has Sportsmark and Activemark Awards, the Basic Skills Agency Quality Mark and the International Schools Award.
