A very small group of pupils attend alternative provision at one of the following providers: REAL Education, Chesterfield Community Farm, and CAST. Governors are responsible for an off-site unit, Westfield, which supports pupils with specific anxiety related needs. Approximately two thirds of pupils are disadvantaged. This is more than twice the national average. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds is very low and there are no pupils who speak English as an additional language. The proportion of pupils who arrive or leave at different times of the school year is high.
