School Description

This is an average size school for pupils with complex special educational needs. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs, mainly for severe learning difficulties, although a few have profound and multiple learning difficulties. A large proportion of all pupils have additional special educational needs relating to autism. Most pupils are of White British heritage, with a few from minority ethnic backgrounds. Very few pupils speak English as an additional language. A very small minority of pupils are 'looked after' by the local authority. There are a few children under five years of age on roll and 19 students in the sixth form. Pupils are admitted from across the county of Norfolk and come from a variety of social and economic backgrounds, with an average proportion entitled to free school meals. The school has built on its numerous awards since the last inspection. It has achieved the Quality in Study Support Award at advanced level for its strategic work in supporting other schools in their extended provision. It has also gained the School's Enterprise award from the University of Warwick, the Bronze School Travel Plan award, the Artsmark Silver award, the Careers Excellence award and the International Eco School award. The school is part of an extended schools cluster with secondary and primary schools and has recently joined the 14-19 partnership with other schools and colleges. The deputy head was recently appointed as headteacher of the school following the retirement of his predecessor. A new chair of governors is also in post.
