School Description

Pupils who attend this school have a range of special educational needs. Most have physical disabilities in addition to a learning difficulty. Almost all pupils come to the school from the London Borough of Croydon. A few travel from neighbouring districts. The headteacher has been in post for 18 months. A new deputy headteacher was appointed last year. The school’s leadership team has been re-structured in recent terms. A much higher proportion of children than the national average are known to be entitled to receive the pupil premium, which provides additional support for children in the care of the local authority, those from service families or those who are entitled to receive free school meals. The number of pupils who come from homes where English is not the first language is higher than the national average. Teams of nurses and therapists are based at the school to provide care and support to pupils and their families and advice to teachers.
