School Description

The school caters for students with moderate learning difficulties and severe learning difficulties. All students have underlying speech, language and communication difficulties and some have gross and fine motor skills difficulties. A few students have a diagnosis of autism. All students have a statement of special educational needs. About a quarter of students are girls, the rest are boys. Three quarters of students, an above average proportion, are from a diverse range of minority ethnic backgrounds and a quarter speak English as an additional language. There have been some changes in the school since the last inspection. The governing body and the Board of Trustees have been reorganised and the senior leadership team has expanded to include three middle managers, including a speech and language therapist. The school works closely with several external services such as occupational therapists. This school receives a small amount of additional government funding for sports. It does not receive additional funding for pupils who are eligible for free school meals or those in local authority care. Students are not entered early for examinations. The school provides training and support for other local schools.

Parayhouse School Reviews

Average Rating:


“Wonderful school”
Parayhouse is a wonderful school. My daughter moved from mainstream a year ago and I was worried about the distance she would have to travel here but it is worth it. The school is a positive, caring , inclusive community. The children are at the heart of everything and the staff are committed, friendly, professional and inspirational. Communication between school and parents is good. My child loves school, is making good progress, has made friends and is more independent. Every time I visit the school, everyone's is smiling. The children are treated as individuals and progress is monitored well. The children go on a wide range of trips and activities including a residential every year. My child is more independent and is progressing with her learning in a supportive environment. We are very happy with the school.
