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

The school is federated with Aegir Community School. The two schools share an executive principal and there is a shared governing body. The Executive Principal and the Assistant Head of School started in their current roles this academic year. All the students have, or are being assessed for, statements of special educational needs. These are for a range of moderate and severe difficulties. Almost two thirds have autism spectrum disorders. There are about four times more boys than girls. At almost half, the proportion of pupils known to be eligible for pupil premium funding is much higher than the national average. This is additional funding for specific groups of pupils, in this case, those who are looked after or who are known to be eligible for free school meals. Comparisons of the achievement of pupils who are and who are not eligible for this funding will not be reported because individuals would potentially be identified due to small cohorts. Very few pupils are from minority ethnic backgrounds. None of the pupils speak English as an additional language. Most have communication difficulties and some use augmentative systems of sign or symbols. The proportion of pupils who start at or leave the school in years other than Nursery or Year 6 is much higher than in most other schools. Most of the pupils who join the school in later years, especially Years 5 and 6 have had less successful starts elsewhere and often have emotional and/or behavioural challenges when they start. The school offers outreach support to 45 Primary Schools in the Local Authority. The school has several accreditations for its provision, including Arts Mark at gold level, the Values Charter Mark and a National Autistic Society accreditation for its outreach work.
