School Description

Croft Community School is a maintained special school for pupils who have cognition and learning difficulties (moderate learning difficulties) and pupils who have communication and interaction difficulties, including pupils with an autistic spectrum disorder diagnosis. A small proportion of pupils have social and emotional or mental health needs. A small number of pupils have severe learning difficulties. The headteacher took up his post in September 2015, at the same time that the school moved into its current premises. The work of the governing body was reviewed following the last inspection. All members of the governing body have been appointed in the last 12 months. There is an increasing number of pupils with an autistic spectrum disorder diagnosis. As a result, leaders are developing the provision for these pupils. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs, or an education, health and care plan. Inspection report: Croft Community School, 5–6 December 2017 Page 10 of 13 The proportion of pupils that are disadvantaged, and known to be entitled to pupil premium funding, is well above the national average. Most pupils are White British. The proportions of pupils from minority ethnic groups and those that speak English as an additional language are well below the national average. There are significantly more boys than girls. There are many more pupils in the secondary department than in the primary department. A very small number of pupils attend the school’s early years provision. The school uses alternative provision for two key stage 4 pupils. At the time of its last inspection in October 2015, the school was judged to require improvement. The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website.
