School Description

The school does not meet requirements on the publication of information about the pupil premium, a link to the school and college performance tables service or the school’s accessibility plan on its website. Since the previous inspection, the school has moved to newly refurbished and additional new-build premises at a new location. There have been a number of changes in governors since the last inspection, including a new chair of the governing body. Pupils at the school have a wide range of SEN and/or disabilities. These include Inspection report: Sir Tom Finney Community High School, 8–9 November 2017 Page 8 of 11 moderate learning difficulties, severe learning difficulties, profound and multiple learning difficulties, visual and hearing impairment, physical disability and medical conditions, social, emotional and mental health needs and autistic spectrum conditions. All pupils have an education, health and care plan or statement of special educational needs. Some pupils have social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. Over half of the pupils at the school are known to be eligible for the pupil premium. This is high compared with the national average. There is a rising proportion of pupils from ethnic backgrounds, although this is presently below the national average. The school does not use any alternative providers.
