School Description

Westcroft Sports and Applied Learning College is a special school for pupils and students who have complex cognitive needs. It is larger than most special schools. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs. The majority have moderate learning difficulties. Some have severe learning difficulties and many have additional needs including medical, speech, language and communication difficulties, autistic spectrum disorders and behavioural difficulties. Most pupils are of white British heritage with a few from other ethnic heritage backgrounds. The vast majority speak English as their first language. Approximately two thirds of pupils are boys. The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium, the additional funding provided by the government to help particular groups such as those known to be eligible for free school meals, is well above average. There have been no pupils in the Early Years Foundation Stage since the last inspection. The college carries out much of its work in relation to its sports and applied learning specialisms within the community. It provides an outreach service to schools in Wolverhampton to support inclusion. Its applied learning centre, Timken, caters for students in Key Stages 4 and 5. The local community also uses the college’s sports facilities on a regular basis. Building work is currently underway to provide 12 new classrooms, a calming room, a four-court sports hall linking to the swimming pool, extensions to the existing primary classrooms and a speech, language and communication area. The first phase is due to be completed in the autumn term 2013.
