School Description

This school provides for pupils with a range of learning difficulties. Approximately half have autistic spectrum disorders with most others having severe and profound learning difficulties. All have a statement of special educational needs. Pupils come from the West Lancashire and Sefton areas and the great majority are transported to school. Almost all are from White British backgrounds. A small number are from a range of other heritages. Virtually all pupils speak English as their first language. Very few pupils are looked after by the local authority. There are just over twice as many boys as girls. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible to be supported by the pupil premium is above average. The pupil premium is additional government funding for pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals, children from service families and those who are looked after. Approximately one fifth of the pupils are children in the Early Years Foundation Stage. The school is located in the same building as Brookfield Park Primary School and some of the resources and facilities are shared. The co-located primary school is subject to a separate inspection and reports for that school can be found at www.ofsted.gov.uk Since the last inspection, the previous headteacher has retired. The previous deputy headteacher and acting assistant headteacher were appointed as headteacher and deputy headteacher respectively.
