School Description

Hazelbeck School provides education for secondary aged students and those in the sixth form. Students experience profound and multiple learning difficulties, specific learning difficulties, autism and multisensory impairments that relate to their ability to hear and see. Many students cannot communicate through speech, and a significant number experience extreme mobility difficulties. Many have additional learning difficulties and disabilities, including physical difficulties and behavioural, emotional and social difficulties. All have a statement of special educational needs or an education, health and care plan (EHC). All students are placed by Bradford local authority and most travel by taxi or minibus to school. More than a third of students are entitled to support through the pupil premium funding. This is the additional funding for disadvantaged students, who are those known to be eligible for free school meals or are looked after by the local authority. The largest single ethnic group of students come from a Pakistani background with around a third overall being of White British origin. Most students arrive at the school at the start of Year 7 but students can be placed at any time during their secondary career. Last year, all of those completing Year 11 went into the sixth form. Hazelbeck School converted to become an academy special school in August 2013. When its predecessor school, Hazelbeck Community Special School was last inspected by Ofsted in 2011 it was judged to be satisfactory. It is co-located with Beckfoot School with which it is partnered in Beckfoot Multi Academy Trust. The two schools share some accommodation and resources on the site. Hazelbeck works closely with other special schools in Bradford (the District Achievement Partnership) to share experience and expertise in helping students with special educational needs. The school does not make use of alternative educational provision but a very small number of students attend for a few hours each week at Keighley College with support from Hazelbeck staff. The school does not enter students early for GCSE.
