School Description

Since the last inspection, the school population has changed. In addition to pupils with moderate learning difficulties, the school provides for pupils whose main needs relate to autism, or speech, language and communication difficulties. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs. The changing needs of pupils has led to the establishment of a nurture group for Year 7 pupils with complex needs, and a withdrawal room for those temporarily unable to cope in their own classroom. Since 2011, the school has run a pilot post-16 transition unit for two students, but this will cease at the end of this academic year. The proportion of pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals or looked after by the local authority, for whom the school receives additional income (the pupil premium), is well above average. Although the majority of pupils are White British, the proportions from minority ethnic backgrounds and who speak English as an additional language are higher than average. The school is a ‘hub school’ for sports and places heavy emphasis on outdoor education. The school is due to be re-built in the next academic year.
