School Description

Gilbrook School provides for primary-age pupils who have a statement of special educational needs for social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. Most pupils have additional learning difficulties and disabilities including attention deficit and hyperactivity disorders, autism spectrum conditions, specific and moderate learning difficulties, and communication difficulties. The proportion of pupils with additional complex needs, particularly autism, is increasing. The school admits pupils from across the whole of the Wirral local authority at any stage in their primary education. At present there are no pupils below Key Stage 2 and there are only two girls. Pupils often spend less than three years at the school and it is becoming increasingly common for pupils to be admitted in Years 5 and 6. The vast majority of pupils are of White British heritage. The number of pupils eligible for the pupil premium is exceptionally high. Pupil premium is additional funding from the government for pupils who are eligible for free school meals and for those children in the care of the local authority. The school manages a behaviour support service on behalf of the local authority, providing advice and support to all of the Wirral’s primary schools. It has recently agreed to offer temporary provision to pupils from the sixth day of an exclusion from other primary schools. Since the previous inspection, the school has been re-located to a new site in a refurbished school building.
