School Description

The Clare School is an average-sized mixed community special school for pupils aged 3 to 19 years of age with complex needs, usually associated with physical disabilities, complex medical needs and/or sensory impairment. Pupils are drawn from a wide catchment area across Norfolk. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs and a small-but-increasing proportion have been diagnosed with degenerative, life-limiting conditions. The overwhelming majority of pupils are of White British heritage. A much higher-than-usual proportion is known to be eligible for free school meals. The school has had specialist school status (SEN physical and sensory) since September 2009. It is co-located with an infant and junior school and is part of the City of Norwich High School cluster. In conjunction with the Norfolk consortium of complex needs schools, it provides an outreach service giving ‘school-to-school’ support. The school holds a number of national and local awards, including Healthy Schools status, Quality in Study Support – Established Mark, High Quality Physical Education (PE) Charter mark, and Excellence in Enterprise Education.
