School Description

The school provides for pupils with a diverse range of needs, including those with moderate and severe learning difficulties, pupils with autistic spectrum disorders and those with difficulties in speech and language development. The school role has increased since the addition of provision, this year, for students in post-16 education and to accommodate a new primary class. The school also provides for the needs of a few pupils on the roll of mainstream schools, and supports re-integration for small numbers into mainstream schools. In addition, the school is designated as a teaching school in partnership with another local school. Together, they form the Merton Special School Alliance. The school does not use alternative provision. About half of the pupils are of White British origin while the remainder reflect the ethnic mix of the borough. Approximately 20% of pupils speak English as an additional language although there is none at the earliest stages of learning to speak English. About two thirds of pupils are boys. Half of the pupils, a higher than average proportion, are eligible for the pupil premium, which is extra funding to support the progress of pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals or who are in the care of the local authority. The headteacher and the great majority of her leadership team were in post at the time of the previous inspection when the school was judged outstanding in all aspects. The headteacher is a National Leader in Education (NLE).
