School Description

The school provides for 41 students between 5 and 18 years, including four students in the sixth form. Students experience a range of mental health difficulties and some have additional complex needs, such as autistic spectrum disorders, behavioural, emotional and social difficulties, specific learning difficulties and speech and communication difficulties. A small number have statements of special educational needs because of their complex learning and behavioural needs. The majority of students are of White British heritage. The proportion of pupils who are supported through the pupil premium varies according to the level of admissions to and departures from the school. The school does not receive pupil premium funding as this goes to the schools from which the students have come. The pupil premium is additional funding that schools receive for pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those who are looked after by the local authority. The school comprises four ‘lodges’: Sapphire Lodge, a 14-bed inpatient and five-day patient unit for young people aged 14 to18 years with complex emotional, mental health and behavioural difficulties; Emerald Lodge, a nine-bed inpatient and three-day patient unit for young people aged 10 to14 years with complex emotional, mental and behavioural difficulties; Ruby Lodge, a seven-bed inpatient unit for young people aged eight to 18 years with a combination of mental health and learning difficulties; and Amber Lodge, an eight-day place unit for young people aged five to 12 years, most of whom have a statement of special educational needs because of their behavioural, emotional and social difficulties. The school belongs to a ‘soft’ federation with other special schools in Sheffield. The school provides outreach support to mainstream schools where students have difficulties in attending school. The school has links with Sheffield University and Sheffield Hallam University through regular student placements at the school. The school has links with Sheffield TaMHS (Targeted Mental Health Service) for mental health research and training purposes. The headteacher is part of the local authority team to develop the inclusion strategy in Sheffield.
