School Description

Alfreton Park School provides for pupils with severe, profound and complex learning difficulties. The complexity of pupils’ needs on entry is increasing, and pupil numbers are growing steadily. Around one third of the pupils have autistic spectrum disorder, often combined with other difficulties such as Down’s Syndrome. Just over one third have severe learning difficulties, and most of the rest of the pupils have profound and multiple learning difficulties. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs. There are more boys than girls, which is typical of schools of this type. About two fifths of the pupils are eligible for the pupil premium. This is well above the national average. The pupil premium is an additional sum of money provided by the government to support the achievement of certain groups of pupils, such as those who are looked after and those known to be eligible for free school meals. Almost all pupils are from White British backgrounds and none speak English as an additional language. Children in the Early Years Foundation Stage are taught together with pupils in Year 1. Both groups follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. The school does not use any alternative educational provision for its secondary and sixth-form pupils. The school is currently led by an acting headteacher (the substantive deputy headteacher) following the headteacher’s retirement at Easter 2013. A senior manager is acting as deputy headteacher. A further senior teacher is absent on long-term sick leave.
