School Description

Rosewood Free School has undergone a significant period of change and expansion. The school was designated as a free school in September 2012, having formerly been a non-maintained special school owned by the Rose Road Association. The school has remained on the same site, but with extensive expansion to buildings. Pupil numbers have more than doubled, with a further increase in pupil numbers in the next academic year. The school offers education to pupils aged two to 19 years with profound and multiple learning difficulties, physical disabilities and complex medical needs. Most have additional needs, such as hearing and visual impairment or autistic spectrum disorder. Some have life limiting medical conditions. All have education health and care plans or are in the process of being assessed for an education, health and care plan. Since the school has expanded, a small number of students with severe learning difficulties and physical difficulties have been admitted to an additional class in the post-16 provision. The post16 provision is known as The Hub. Pupils are placed in the school by two local authorities. Most pupils are of White British heritage, although there are increasing numbers of pupils from different backgrounds, including some who are new to understanding English. There are more boys than girls. Around one in eight pupils is known to be eligible for the pupil premium. There are currently two looked after pupils in school.
