School Description

Heaton School is a special school catering for students aged 11-19 with complex learning difficulties. All students have statements of special educational needs. The main categories of need are severe learning difficulties, profound and multiple learning difficulties and autistic spectrum disorder. However, many students have additional needs, particularly communication difficulties and those of a medical nature. The proportion of students known to be eligible for free school meals is high (31%). Nearly all students are of White British heritage. Six students are in the care of the local authority. The school’s sixth form, the provision for 16-19 year-olds, is called the Extended Education Department. A proportion of students joins this department each year from other special schools and specially resourced units in mainstream secondary schools to continue their education. The school has Performing Arts Specialist College status. It provides extended services by way of after-school clubs, a youth club and a holiday club for students. There are facilities for multi-agency work, particularly with health professionals and to support parents and carers. The school has been completely refurbished since the last inspection.
