School Description

Sandfield Park School caters for students in a number of different settings. On the main school site, students at Key Stages 3 and 4 and in the post-16 or sixth form have a range of complex needs including physical disabilities and autism spectrum conditions with additional learning difficulties, severe and moderate learning difficulties and a small number of students have profound and multiple learning difficulties. The school also provides education for students of primary and secondary age on hospital sites. These students may be in the hospital for medical or surgical treatment or attending the Alder Centre for Education (ACE) and the Dewi Jones Unit for medical and/or mental health reasons. Many of these students will attend for relatively short periods of time. All students on the main school site have a statement of special educational needs. The majority of students in the school are of White British heritage and only a small number have English as an additional language. More than half of students in the school are eligible for the pupil premium. This is additional funding for students who are known to be eligible for free school meals or for those who are looked after by the local authority. This proportion is over twice the national average. The school is currently making use of alternative provision at Hugh Baird College for sixth-form students. There has been a change of headteacher since the previous inspection. The current headteacher took up post in January 2014. At the time of the inspection, building work was underway on the school site to provide linked accommodation for pupils attending the Alder Centre for Education. This is due to open during the spring term 2015. The hospital school will move into new accommodation in the new Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, which is due for completion later in 2015. The Dewi Jones Unit is situated in hospital accommodation some five miles from the main school site.
