School Description

High Close is a non-maintained special school with residential provision and is owned by Barnardo’s. The school caters for pupils aged from seven to 18 years but does not have a sixth form. All the pupils have a statement of special educational needs or an education, health and care plan. The vast majority of pupils have social, emotional and mental health needs, and over half also have at least three other identified needs, including speech, language and communication needs, autistic spectrum conditions, obsessive compulsive conditions and/or other medical needs. Pupils have been placed by over 20 different local authorities and many have experienced considerable changes in their education and home lives. The proportions of pupils looked after by local authorities and those supported by the pupil premium are much higher than average. The school does receive some pupil Inspection report: High Close School, 27–28 February 2018 Page 8 of 11 premium funding, but not for all the pupils who are categorised as disadvantaged.
