School Description

The school is designated to take pupils between the ages of 2 and 16, living in West Oxfordshire, with cognition and learning difficulties. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs, predominantly for severe learning difficulties. The next largest group is of pupils with autistic spectrum disorder. There are small groups with profound and multiple learning difficulties, behavioural, emotional and social difficulties and physical difficulties. The proportion of pupils from ethnic groups other than White British is lower than the national average and most pupils speak English as a first language. The school has a lower-than-average proportion of pupils eligible for support through additional pupil premium funding. This is additional government funding provided for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, those looked after by the local authority and those with a parent in the armed services. In this school the pupils receiving additional funding are those known to be eligible for free school meals. The school also receives the literacy and numeracy catch-up premium, which provides schools with additional funding for each Year 7 pupil who did not achieve at least Level 4 (the nationally expected level) in reading and/or mathematics at the end of Key Stage 2. In this school the funding applies to all Year 7 pupils. In common with all schools with primary-age pupils, the school also receives extra funding to improve physical education (PE) and sport. Mobility in the school is much higher than average because a sizeable number of pupils join the school at different times, arriving from other schools. The school shares its two, adjacent sites with two mainstream schools, one primary and one secondary. An after-school club is run by an external provider and subject to a separate inspection.
