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

School Description

Pebble Brook School has doubled in size since the previous section 5 inspection. The groups of students for which it provides have also changed significantly. It now caters mainly for students with speech, language and communication needs, those with a diagnosis of autism, those with moderate learning needs and other complex needs, and increasingly for those with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties that cannot manage in mainstream schools. All students have a statement of special educational needs. The post-16 provision, started in September 2012, is now well established. Many students benefit from courses at Aylesbury College and from access to a wide range of other local providers as need arises. Around a third of the students are eligible for the pupil premium funding (additional funding provided by government for those students eligible for free school meals, those who are looked after by the local authority and those from service families). There are no students from service families in the school. The proportion of the students who are from ethnic minority groups is approximately a third of the school population. None are at the early stages of learning English although most speak English as an additional language. The remaining two thirds of students are of White British heritage. A number of students join the school throughout the academic year. As the school roll has expanded so has the number of staff. Six new teaching staff joined the school in September as did a number of additional support staff, including three who trained on the school’s apprenticeship scheme for support staff. The headteacher took up his post shortly before the last section 5 inspection. The deputy headteacher took up his post as acting deputy headteacher just after the inspection and the assistant headteacher in charge of teaching joined the school earlier this year. Building works have been completed and improvements to the external environment are also finished.

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the last School Census (released annually in July).

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the last School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.
