Special schools provide a unique and distinctive educational environment to meet the needs of the pupils in their community. Undertaking standard standard tests may not be appropriate and we do not show performance data for special schools.

School Description

The school does not meet requirements on the publication of information on its website about, among other things, the curriculum, the Year 7 catch-up funding, the pupil premium funding and the complaints procedures. 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.

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the last School Census (released annually in July).

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the last School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.
