School Description

St Pier’s School is part of the National Centre for Young People with Epilepsy (NCYPE) and provides education for both residential and day pupils with epilepsy and a range of other medical and neurological disorders. All pupils have a statement of special education needs. A majority of pupils have additional needs such as severe learning difficulties or autism and a few have moderate learning difficulties. Pupils are split equally between a Main School (Key Stage 1, Key Stage 2, Key Stage 3 and Key stage 4) and Sixth Form. Most pupils start at the school at times other than the beginning of Year 1, with a large proportion joining in Key Stage 3 and the sixth form. Almost all pupils are White British, with very few children coming from minority ethnic backgrounds. The school is run by an integrated Education Governing Body that reports to the charitable trust. Three members of the charitable trust are permanent members of the Education Governing Body. The Chair of the Education Governing Body, the headteacher and most senior leaders of the school were appointed after the previous inspection. The school manages a Surestart Children’s Centre. It also maintains a strong relationship with other on-site NCYPE providers such as St Piers Further Education College and the Neville Childhood Epilepsy Centre which accommodates a Medical and Research Centre with links to Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children. All pupils in the school are eligible through the school’s funding mechanisms for free school meals. Last year about one tenth of pupils looked after by the local authority were supported through the pupil premium funding (additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, who are looked after by the local authority or children of service families). Pupils in St. Pier’s School do not use off-site provision.
