Willingdon Community School is of average size. It has specialist status for media and visual arts. It houses a special facility for hearing impaired students which is managed by the local authority, although the students are on the school’s roll. There were three students attending the facility at the time of the inspection, all of whom have statements of special educational needs. A lower-than-average proportion of students are known to be eligible for the pupil premium, or have special educational needs and disabilities requiring support at school action, school action plus or through a statement of special educational needs. A small number of Traveller students attend the school. Numbers fluctuate and there were 14 attending at the time of the inspection. The great majority of students are White British with few having first languages other than English. The school supports the leadership of other local schools through its designations as a Leading Edge School and a Gifted and Talented Lead School. In the last year the headteacher has provided support for three local secondary schools. The school meets the current floor standards which set the government’s minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress.
