School Description

Springwater School serves pupils between the ages of two and 19 years. A new headteacher was appointed in April 2015. It provides for pupils with severe or profound learning difficulties, of which about one third have autistic spectrum condition. A small minority has moderate learning difficulties. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs or an educational health and care plan. Some pupils are looked after by the local authority. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils, those who receive support through the pupil premium, is just above average. (The pupil premium is additional funding provided by the government to support pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those who are looked after by the local authority). The number of pupils on roll is increasing, with a significant rise in the number of pupils in the sixth form. Children in the combined Early Years Foundation Stage and Reception class attend part-time and gradually increase their hours to full time. Where they do not attend full time in Reception this is due to medical circumstances. None of the pupils attend alternative provision. The school has specialist status in Cognition and Learning, National Autistic Society accredited status and is a MOVE centre of excellence. The school operates a significant outreach programme, supporting mainstream schools in providing for pupils with severe learning difficulties. These pupils are not on the roll of Springwater and are not included in the judgements of this report. The school is a partner of the North Yorkshire Communication Aids Partnership, part of the Red Kite Teaching Alliance, and provides strategic leadership for the Harrogate Personalised Learning Pathway, supporting learners post-19 in employment, independent living and training.
