School Description

Bluebell Park School was formed by the amalgamation of Springfield School and the Elms School on 1 September 2014. These schools were previously federated under one governing body. When the federated schools were last inspected by Ofsted, they were judged to be good overall. The school has had a vacancy for a substantive headteacher since May 2016. There are currently two joint acting headteachers. Some other senior leadership roles are also interim. The chair of the governing body has been in role for roughly two years. Inspection report: Bluebell Park School, 3–4 May 2017 Page 9 of 12 All pupils have a statement of special educational needs or an education, health and care plan, and most show a significant degree of learning difficulty. Many pupils also have autistic spectrum disorder and, in recent years, pupils’ needs have become increasingly severe and complex. There is increasing demand for places at the school. Almost all pupils are from a White British background, and there are more boys than girls in the school. Around half of the pupils are supported by the pupil premium funding. A small minority of pupils are looked after by the local authority. Classes often include pupils of mixed ages. The school has sixth-form provision for students up to the age of 19. No pupils attend off-site, alternative provision. A range of other professionals work in the school for some or all of the week. These include a nursing team, physiotherapists and speech and language therapists. The school does not meet requirements on the publication of information about the curriculum, governors, results or special educational needs on its website.
