School Description

Southfield School converted to become an academy school in August 2013. When its predecessor school was last inspected by Ofsted it was judged to require improvement overall. The school has retained its name since converting to be an academy. Southfield School is co-located on a new campus with Grange Technology College, a large secondary academy. Together they form the Southfield Grange Trust. There is a shared service for students with visual impairment across both schools. Southfield provides for students who have severe, profound and multiple learning difficulties, many of whom also have autism spectrum conditions. Students generally have complex combinations of special educational needs, including students with life-limiting conditions or other significant medical needs. Almost two-thirds of students are boys. Half of all students are from minority ethnic groups with the large majority of these having English as an additional language. The proportion of disadvantaged students, those who are supported through the pupil premium is over twice the national average. The pupil premium is additional government funding for those students in Key Stages 3 and 4 who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those who are looked after by the local authority. The sixth form centre, known as the Pathfinder Vocational Centre, is located in a separate building across the road from the main site. Where appropriate, sixth form students can attend Project Search which Southfield School runs in partnership with the local hospital and HFT (provider of adult disability services). This creates work place experience and potential future employment opportunities. Southfield networks with other special schools in Bradford in the District Achievement Partnership (DAP). This provides a mutually supportive network of special schools which also develops new teachers through Teach Direct. Students generally join the school at Year 7 but can be admitted at any time with a growing number of students joining for the sixth form provision.
