School Description

Fitzwaryn School converted to become an academy school on 1st February 2013. When its predecessor school was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be outstanding. Fitzwaryn School along with its partners, Kingfisher School and Abingdon and Witney College, are known as 'The Propeller Academy Trust'. All three work closely together but have kept their original names. The school caters for pupils who are supported by a statement of special educational needs for their moderate, severe and/or complex needs. About a third of pupils have a diagnosis of autism and a few others have additional sensory or physical difficulties. Almost all pupils are of White British heritage. A very few are from African or Asian backgrounds and a small number speak English as an additional language. The school runs an outreach service to support other local schools. The proportion of pupils eligible for the pupil premium is average. This is additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those children who are looked after. Additional primary school sports funding is provided for primary-aged pupils. Year 7 catch-up funding is provided for the few pupils in that year group. Off-site training for sixth form students for one-and-a-half days each week is provided by Abingdon and Witney College which is part of the Trust. The Early Years Foundation Stage is full time. Children in the Reception class share their education with older pupils in Years 1 and 2. The school has undergone a significant amount of rebuilding and refurbishment in the past few years. The school does not enter pupils early for examinations.
