School Description

The school provides for pupils with a wide range of learning difficulties and disabilities, including severe to profound and multiple, moderate and physical. Some experience behavioural, emotional and social difficulties and a small, but increasing, minority have autistic spectrum conditions. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs. Two pupils are dual registered with local mainstream schools. A small number of pupils are placed at the school from neighbouring authorities. The sixth-form students are able to access some after-school provision managed by the school. There are currently 12 children attending the school in the Early Years Foundation Stage. There are roughly the same number of boys and girls on roll. Most of the pupils are White British. Very few pupils do not speak English as their first language. The proportion of pupils in the school who are entitled to receive support through the pupil premium funding is above average. The pupil premium is additional government funding provided to give extra support to those pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those who are looked after by the local authority. Sixth-form students have the opportunity to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award with staff from the Conway Centre, to attend West Cheshire College part-time, and to take part in work placements with the Bren Project and Changing Education. The school has many links with other schools in the local authority and beyond. The school has a wide range of national awards including Investors in People Gold, the Green Flag Status Eco Award and the Artsmark Gold.
