School Description

Since the last inspection there have been a number of changes. The school has moved into a different building and the number of pupils on roll has doubled. There were no pupils at key stage 2 at the time of the last inspection. The current headteacher was appointed in September 2018. The chair of governors has held this position for two years. The school provides education for pupils who have an education, health and care plan for social, emotional and mental health. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils is well above average. A number of pupils are looked after by the local authority. The majority of pupils are boys. The vast majority are White British. A small proportion are travellers of Irish heritage. The school works in partnership with the local authority. Staff provide training in SEN Inspection report: Woolston Brook School, 9–10 January 2019 Page 9 of 12 to local mainstream schools. Leaders have also established a teaching and learning partnership with Chaigheley School, an independent special school in Warrington, enabling subject leaders to share good practice. A small number of pupils attend alternative provision to pursue vocational studies for one or two days a week at Warrington Vale Royal Collegiate or Cornerstones, an independent educational provider. A small number are educated by school staff within the community.
