School Description

The school meets the needs of ninety-eight pupils aged between two and nineteen all of whom have a statement of special educational needs and/or disabilities or are currently being assessed for one. Pupils who attend come from all over the East Riding of Yorkshire with many travelling significant distances. All have learning difficulties and many have complex needs including autistic spectrum disorder (ASD), speech and language difficulties, sensory impairment, physical difficulties as well as profound and multiple learning difficulties. A slightly more than average proportion of pupils are disadvantaged (pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those in the care of the local authority who are supported by the pupil-premium additional funding). The school is currently located on three different sites. This is due in part to a current building project which is to be completed next year which will, for the first time, bring early years to Key Stage 4 provision on one site. Children in early years and Key Stage 1 are educated in a primary school building in Gembling which is approximately eight miles away from the main school. Currently, there are ten Key Stage 1 pupils and 16 who are of nursery or reception age, 13 of whom attend part time. The 25 Key Stage 4 and sixth form students are educated at the Student Centre which is located at Driffield High school. Currently, the oldest students are 18 although it is planned that they will remain at the school until they are 19. The majority of sixth form students who attend the Student Centre also attend East Riding College completing a variety of courses linked to work-based and life skills. School staff accompany pupils at all times so this is not regarded by the school as alternative provision. A short break residential unit is located on the school site in which up to 12 pupils stay for one or two nights. The current headteacher took up post in November 2013. The assistant headteacher took up post as deputy headteacher in September 2014. An assistant headteacher has also recently been appointed. The school’s residential provision was inspected in March 2014 and was judged to be good in all areas.

Pupil heat map key

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the last School Census (released annually in July).

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the last School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.
