School Description

Ash Lea is a special school catering for pupils aged three to 18 years who have complex learning difficulties. Many pupils also have significant physical and mental health difficulties. All pupils have an education, health and care plan. The school has devised three stages of learning known as pre-formal, semi-formal and formal. The vast majority of pupils work at the pre-formal and semi-formal learning stages which are based around the early years curriculum as a framework for learning. The school has fewer than five children in the early years. They work within the primary classes. Sixth-form students work in a purpose-designed area of the school, where they have their own common room. They also access courses at local colleges and a variety of work experience opportunities within the school itself, and the local community. The school does not send pupils to alternative provision. The school works in partnership with schools locally and with teaching school alliances, which include Candleby Lane and Affinity. The school receives support from the local authority education improvement Inspection report: Ash Lea School 2–3 October 2019 5 adviser through their core offer.
