School Description

The school moved into its new, purpose built accommodation in April 2012. The school converted to become an academy in September 2012 following the closure of its predecessor school and has retained the same name. When a local authority school, Maplefields School was previously inspected in December 2009 and judged to be outstanding. The school provides a Behaviour Outreach Service in the local authority area and supports a number of similar schools across the country with their behaviour outreach and school improvement work. The school also provides support for the parents and carers of its pupils. Since moving into its new accommodation the numbers on roll have been increasing gradually. The school caters for pupils aged 5 to students aged 19 years. Sixth form students attend parttime at Maplefields and at Tresham College, following a range of vocational courses. All pupils and students have a statement of special educational need, primarily for behaviour, emotional and social difficulties. Pupils and students may also have a range of other complex needs which may include Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder, Attention Deficit Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Tourette's Syndrome, Mental Health Difficulties, Language and Learning difficulties, Asperger's Syndrome, or Autistic Spectrum Disorders. Most pupils are of White British heritage. A very few come from other ethnic heritage backgrounds. All speak English as their first language. The majority of pupils and students are boys. The proportion of pupils for whom the school receives the pupil premium (additional government funding for particular groups, including those known to be eligible for free school meals) is well above the national average. Mobility at the school is very high; few pupils continue their entire education at the school.
