School Description

Pivot Academy is a secondary day school which caters for pupils who have been permanently excluded or are at risk of exclusion. Pupils have often experienced significant disruption to their education prior to attending the school. The school’s vision is to identify an alternative education pathway for students through ‘high-quality assessment, identification of need and a focus on outcomes’. The school is located on two sites. Key stage 4 pupils are at the Cleckheaton site, which opened in September 2017. There are two buildings on the Bradley site: the ‘bungalow’, which opened in December 2017, caters for pupils in Years 8 and 9; and ‘Pivot 6’, which provides temporary provision for pupils who have been permanently excluded from their Inspection report: Pivot Academy, 16–18 January 2018 Page 8 of 11 school and are waiting to start at a new school. The proportion of pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities is well above the national average. There are too few pupils eligible for pupil premium and enhanced pupil premium funding to identify them in this report. A new interim headteacher took up his post two days prior to the inspection. The school was registered by the Department for Education on 22 August 2017. This is the school’s first standard inspection. The school does not use any alternative education provision.
