School Description

Greenacre School is a large special school which provides for children and young people with severe and complex learning difficulties. A number of students have profound and multiple learning difficulties and many also have additional special educational needs and/or difficulties including physical and sensory impairments or difficulties on the autistic spectrum. The school has an additional provision for 32 children and young people with communication and interaction difficulties and specific speech and language difficulties, funded by the local authority. All students have a statement of special educational needs. They attend the school from across Barnsley local authority. Some students from neighbouring authorities also attend the school. Since the previous inspection, the school has moved into a newly built and re-furbished building. The number of students on roll has increased substantially and there is significant demand for places for new students. The proportion known to be eligible for the pupil premium (additional funding) is high. Most students are of White British heritage. There are a small number of children in the Early Years Foundation Stage who are taught alongside children of pre-compulsory school age. A large number of students aged 16 to 19 attend the school’s sixth form, Greenacre College, which is housed in the same building as the main part of the school. They attend the school’s Life Skills House in Barnsley town centre for part of the time. A small number of students follow courses and/or work experience in construction, car mechanics and equine care at Barnsley Community Build, Riding for the Disabled and Motor Mouth.
