School Description

Wren Spinney caters for students with severe, profound and multiple learning difficulties. A high proportion of students have autistic spectrum disorder, most have communication difficulties and some have complex learning difficulties or medical needs. All students have a statement of special educational needs as none are supported at school action or school action plus. Most students are White British and very few students speak English as an additional language. The proportion of students known to be eligible for the pupil premium is below average. This is the additional funding for those known to be eligible for free school meals, those in local authority care or from families where a parent is in the armed forces. Approximately half of the students attend alternative providers, for part of their education. These include, The Shop and The Studio managed by the school in Kettering, which provide opportunities for students to engage in work-related learning and partnership working with other local mainstream and special schools. These also include Friars, Greenfields and Billing Brook special schools within the Northamptonshire special schools consortium. The school has very recently been awarded Teaching School status in conjunction with five other special schools by the National College for Teaching and Leadership. Since the previous inspection there has been a significant increase in the sixth form, the school has established The Studio and is part of the Northamptonshire special schools consortium and a new Chair of governors is in post.
