School Description

This is a special school for pupils who have severe learning difficulties, profound and multiple learning difficulties or autistic spectrum disorders. There are more boys than girls. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for pupil premium (additional funding for pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals or children who are looked after) is above average. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds and those who speak English as an additional language is a little above average. Pupils are grouped according to their type of need, in mixed-age classes within key stages. Reception children attend full time and are taught alongside Key Stage 1 pupils. A small number of pupils attend Peter Gladwin School and Lancing College, which are local mainstream primary and secondary schools. Pupils are accompanied by Hillside staff. The school is available as an ‘outreach’ service to any other schools in the local area, giving expertise, advice and training to their staff. The long-serving previous headteacher retired in July 2014 and the new headteacher was appointed from September.
