School Description

Springhead School is a specialist school for cognition and learning. Pupils have a wide range of learning needs, including severe learning difficulties (SLD) and profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD). Many also have a broad range of additional needs such as autism or complex medical needs. A number also present challenging behavioural difficulties. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs. The proportion of pupils who are eligible for support through the pupil premium is much higher than average. (The pupil premium is additional government funding provided for children who are looked after by the local authority and those known to be eligible for free school meals.) Children in the Early Years Foundation Stage and two primary classes are taught in specialist classrooms adjacent to The Hinderwell Primary Academy. Students in Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 are taught in the main school and also attend regular sessions at a multi-sensory off-site provision (The Learning Zone). Students in the sixth form are either taught in the main school or in an off-site provision (The Street). Leaders have recently established a transition class to help students move from Key Stage 4 to the sixth form. During the summer term, the school leases a beach hut to convert into an outdoor classroom.
