School Description

Sky College is a special school for boys between the ages of 10 and 17 who have a statement of special educational need or an education, health and care plan for social, emotional or mental health difficulties. Many students have previously attended at least four different schools. The school has recently set up a specialist nurture provision. Students come from different parts of Somerset. Almost all students are from White British backgrounds. Ninety per cent of students are supported by the pupil premium, which is additional government funding for students known to be eligible for free school meals or looked-after children by the local authority. This proportion is well above average. The school has boarding provision for up to ten students who can be accommodated up to four nights a week. Only six students are currently using this facility. This provision was last inspected in March 2014. The buildings have recently had significant refurbishment including some new buildings to provide up-todate accommodation. The school has an off-site classroom in Bridgwater, run by its own staff. Some students attend the Alternative Education Centre on the Blackdown Hills, Deane Discovery Centre Forest School, the Mendip Motor Project in Street, and Reach Alternative Education Provision in South Petherton. The vast majority of the governing body are new to post, including the Chair and Vice-Chair.
