School Description

Harlow Fields School and College provides for disabled pupils and those with special educational needs arising from severe learning difficulties, profound and multiple learning difficulties and autistic spectrum disorder. A few pupils have moderate learning difficulties and a small proportion have additional complex medical or sensory needs. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs and significant number of pupils join the school other than at the usual times of admission. The majority of pupils are White British. An above average proportion of pupils are from minority ethnic backgrounds and a broadly average proportion speak English as an additional language. The proportion of pupils for whom the school receives pupil premium funding is above average at around two fifths of pupils. This is additional funding for pupils entitled to free school meals or who are looked after by the local authority. All students in the sixth form attend Capel Manor College in Enfield to learn horticulture as part of their education. Since the last inspection there has been a significant increase in the number of pupils with autistic spectrum disorder referred to the school, and a corresponding decrease in the proportion of pupils with moderate learning difficulties. An interim headteacher has very recently been appointed.
