School Description

Bishopswood is a school for pupils with severe or profound and multiple learning difficulties. About half of pupils have additional special educational needs including autism spectrum disorders, physical impairments and/or speech and language difficulties. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium (additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, looked-after children and those with a parent in the armed forces) is above average. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds is about average but most speak English at home. The school has three different sites, each one based in local mainstream schools. Children in the Early Years Foundation Stage are based in a primary school about five miles from the other two sites. Pupils in Years 1 to 6 are co-located with a local primary school and those in Years 7 to 11 share a site with a nearby secondary school. The Bishopswood governing body and leadership team manage the three sites. The school provides outreach support to several local schools. The headteacher has been in post just over a year.
