School Description

The school provides specialist education for pupils who have social, emotional and mental health difficulties. Virtually all pupils have an education, health and care plan, or a statement of special educational needs. Since the school was last inspected, an additional key stage has been added and the school now admits pupils from Years 3 to 11. Key stage 2 has, therefore, not previously been inspected. Although the school has grown in size since the last inspection, it continues to be much smaller than the average-sized school. There are 16 pupils in key stage 2, taught in a separate building from the 75 pupils in key stages 3 and 4. The two buildings are about two miles apart. The proportion of pupils supported by pupil premium funding is well above average. Almost all pupils are of White British heritage. Inspection report: New Park School, 30 November–1 December 2016 Page 9 of 12 The school population is much less stable than that seen nationally because pupils typically start in any year group and many successfully return to mainstream education before completing their education at the school. Twenty-four pupils attend alternative or off-site provision for between one to five days, with some attending more than one provider. The providers used by the school include: City West Housing Trust, Redbox Training, Incredible Education, Brighter Futures, Bee Hive Wilkinson Welding Academy and Salford City College. Some pupils take part in work experience placements. Eleven pupils receive education other than at school. Three pupils are dual registered but educated full-time in other mainstream schools. Eight pupils are home educated. The school does not meet requirements on the publication of information about key stage 2 and key stage 4 performance information and Year 7 literacy and numeracy catch-up premium. The school did not meet the government’s floor standards in 2015. The floor standards set the minimum expectations for progress and attainment in key stage 2 and key stage 4.
