School Description

Penkford School provides for primary- and secondary-aged pupils, all of whom have a statement of special educational needs or an education, health and care plan (EHC) relating to behavioural, emotional and social difficulties. The vast majority of pupils have a White British heritage and their first language is English. Most pupils (above the national average) are entitled to support provided by the pupil premium (additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those looked after by the local authority). There are very few girls. The school operates the Building Futures vocational centre located in Moorcroft Road WA9 2DY, near the school. A number of older pupils do vocational training courses here. Other pupils from local schools make use of the centre in agreement with the school. This aspect was not part of the inspection process. The school has a working link with Woolton High School to share best practice.
