A Parent's Guide to Choosing a Special School


School Description

Greenhill is a special school, maintained by Cardiff City Council, that provides day education for 56 pupils age 11 to 16. All pupils have statements of special educational needs in relation to their social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. Many pupils have specific learning difficulties that may include dyslexia, dyspraxia or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. A few pupils also have particular medical needs. Almost all pupils live in Cardiff and a very few come from neighbouring authorities. Currently all the pupils on roll are boys. About one fifth of pupils are from minority ethnic backgrounds. A very few pupils are looked after by the local authority. Currently no pupils speak English as a second language. No pupils speak Welsh as their first language at home. About 80% of pupils receive free school meals. This is much higher than the all Wales average of 20%. Pupils are taught in seven classes that are broadly determined by pupils’ age and key stage. The school provides an alternative education programme to meet pupils’ needs. Most pupils, and mainly those in in key stage 4, follow this programme. The school was last inspected in January 2007. The headteacher took up post in September 2007. The leadership team was restructured in 2011 to include the headteacher, deputy headteacher and an assistant headteacher who took up the post in 2011. The 2012-2013 individual school budget per pupil for Greenhill Special School is £18,292, which compares to a national average of £18,633 for all maintained special schools in Wales.
