Special schools provide a unique and distinctive educational environment to meet the needs of the pupils in their community. Undertaking standard tests may not be appropriate and we do not show performance data for special schools.

School Description

This school takes pupils who have a range of complex learning difficulties. All have a statement of special educational needs. Almost half of pupils have moderate learning difficulties. Other main groups include pupils with autism spectrum conditions, speech, language and communication needs and a small proportion of pupils with more severe learning difficulties or physical disabilities. Almost all pupils have additional needs. An increasing number of pupils with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties are being admitted to the school. Almost half of pupils receive additional government funding known as the pupil premium, because they are eligible for free school meals. A small minority of pupils who are looked after children or children of armed services families are also eligible for the pupil premium. Almost all pupils are White British. Pupils are drawn from across the Wyre and Fylde area and many travel long distances to school. Since the previous inspection there have been significant changes in staffing, including in the leadership team. At the time of the inspection there were no children in the Early Years Foundation Stage and the school and local authority have no plans to admit children to this stage for the foreseeable future. Year 10 and 11 students can access courses at Blackpool and Fylde College and Myerscough College for half a day a week but these were not running at the time of the inspection.
