School Description

This is a school for students with autism; many also have moderate learning difficulties (MLD). The school’s designation changed shortly after its last inspection. Up until then it had been a school for students who primarily had MLD but also displayed signs of autism. The few remaining students designated as primarily MLD are due to leave at the end of this year. The school serves the whole of the borough so students come from a huge range of backgrounds. Many students have additional difficulties relating to learning, medical and physical needs and specific language difficulties. There are about five times as many boys as girls; this is not uncommon in a school such as this. Nearly all students are White British. There are currently no looked after children. Twelve students are known to be eligible for the pupil premium (extra government money for those known to be eligible for free school meals, being looked after or being the children of armed forces personnel) All students have a statement of special educational needs. The school is currently working towards National Autistic Society accredited status and achieved Specialist Status (communication and interaction) in 2010.
