School Description

Hayfield provides for pupils who have social communication difficulties, the majority of whom have autism spectrum conditions and for pupils who have moderate learning difficulties usually associated with additional special educational needs. The school’s recognition by Autism Accreditation through the National Autistic Society has been recently renewed. The proportion of pupils with social communication difficulties/autism has increased since the previous inspection. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs. Almost half of the pupils are known to be eligible for the pupil premium (additional funding). This is well above the national average. The vast majority of pupils are of White British heritage. Pupils often join the school at other than the usual times, usually transferring from mainstream primary schools. Some pupils may have had many previous placements. Some pupils experience activities in other primary schools, often in their local neighbourhood school. Hayfield also has partnerships with Overchurch Junior School and St Ann’s Primary School which offer inclusion opportunities to Hayfield pupils and shared projects. Hayfield School has an outreach role, providing advice and support for pupils with special educational needs and training to staff in other schools on request. The school holds a number of awards including Autism Accreditation through the National Autistic Society, full International Schools Award, Basic Skills Quality Mark, Artsmark Gold, Activemark and a number of local awards for inclusion and health promotion.
