School Description

The school does not meet the Department for Education’s requirements on the publication of specified information on its website. Omissions include information about the curriculum, the Year 7 catch-up funding, the pupil premium funding and the complaints procedures. The school is in the process of ratifying up-to-date policies, including those regarding safeguarding. The ones on the website are not up to date and the website is currently under construction. St Luke’s works with children identified as having social, emotional and mental health issues. All pupils have either a statement of special educational needs or an education, health and care plan. In addition to their primary need, many of the pupils have additional needs such as an autism spectrum condition, communication difficulties and cognitive interruption. There are 77 places available, with 71 pupils currently on roll. Inspection report: St Luke's School, 2–3 November 2016 Page 8 of 11 The vast majority of pupils are White British boys. All pupils in Year 7 are entitled to the Year 7 catch-up funding. Just over two thirds of pupils are disadvantaged. Interim leadership arrangements put in place around Easter 2016 have recently been made permanent. An executive headteacher, who is the substantive headteacher of a local special school, has been appointed and a new chair of governors was elected in September 2016. A head of school joined the school on 31 October 2016. The school sends a few pupils to the Swindon Tuition Centre, for mathematics and English. Some pupils also visit the educational farm at Crowdys Hill School to learn about different aspects of animal care. A number of pupils are educated part time, in agreement with their parents, as part of their induction plan when joining the school. These arrangements are generally for those new pupils who have previously been out of formal education for some time. Each school day starts with a communal breakfast club. There are no after-school activities or clubs. The vast majority of pupils arrive to school using local authority transport.
