School Description

This is a school for students who have physical disabilities or profound, multiple and complex learning difficulties. There is a trend for more and more students to be admitted with an everincreasing complexity and degree of need. Many students need personal care in all situations. Nearly all students are White British. A much higher proportion than average is known to be eligible for the pupil premium. (The pupil premium is additional funding for those pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals, children from service families and those children who are looked after). Boys outnumber girls by about 3:1; this is usual in schools of this type. A long-serving headteacher has left since the last inspection and for the last year the school has had an acting headteacher. The school is due to move into new buildings in the near future.
