Special schools provide a unique and distinctive educational environment to meet the needs of the pupils in their community. Undertaking standard standard tests may not be appropriate and we do not show performance data for special schools.

School Description

Almost all students have a statement of special educational needs for behavioural, emotional and social difficulties. A very small number are in the process of assessment of their special educational needs. A minority of the students have additional learning difficulties related to communication disorders. Many students join the school at other than normal times. Currently there is one girl on the school’s roll who has a placement in alternative provision used by the school. About half the students are White British in origin. Other pupils come from a range of minority ethnic backgrounds, reflecting the make-up of the borough. There are currently no pupils who speak English as an additional language. A significantly above-average proportion of students are entitled to additional government funding, the pupil premium. This is funding for students who are entitled to free school meals or who are looked after. A minority of older students aged 14 to 16 attend on a full-time or part-time basis at a range of alternative educational placements, including Carshalton College, which are commissioned by the school. The executive headteacher is headteacher of Melbury College, which is comprised of a separate pupil referral unit, the borough’s Medical group, the Alternative Education service and Melrose School. There is an additional head of school at Melrose School.
