School Description

Most students have moderate, severe, or profound and multiple learning difficulties. Some students additionally have either additional communication difficulties, complex medical conditions, challenging behaviour or a sensory impairment. Over half of the students are in the sixth form. The large majority of students are White British. Most other students are of Pakistani or Bangladeshi heritage. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs. The proportion of students known to be eligible for the pupil premium is above average. (The pupil premium is additional funding for those students who are known to be eligible for free school meals, children form service families and those children that are looked after by the local authority.) What does the school need to do to improve further? Improve teaching, so that it is consistently good and more is outstanding, in order to raise achievement even further, particularly in mathematics, by ensuring that : the pace of learning in all parts of lessons is always kept up so that students learn quickly, particularly at the beginning of mathematics lessons students always have the opportunity to respond to teachers’ marking and other written comments so that they know how to improve their work teaching assistants are always deployed effectively to help students learn students are given more time to use and apply their mathematical skills to solve problems. Further improve the effectiveness of leadership and management by developing the role of subject leaders so that they can contribute more fully to the monitoring of students’ progress. Improve the sixth form by widening the range of qualifications available for students with profound or complex needs.
