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

School Description

 The Coppice School caters for pupils and students who have severe and/or profound and multiple learning difficulties. An increasing proportion of pupils have autism spectrum conditions, complex medical conditions and physical disabilities.  The proportion of disadvantaged pupils supported by the pupil premium is well above average. The pupil premium is additional funding for those pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those children who are looked after by the local authority.  The very large majority of pupils are of White British heritage. There are a very small number of pupils who come from homes where English is as an additional language.  About two-thirds of pupils are boys.  Off-site education for some of the sixth form students is provided at Runshaw College and Brothers of Charity.  Classes are mainly based on the ages and key stages of pupils. Children in the early years are taught in a class alongside pupils from Years 1 and 2 pupils from time to time depending on learning needs. There is one Key Stage 3 and 4 class specifically for pupils with autism spectrum conditions but there are also pupils and students with autism in other classes across the school.  The school provides some training in communication and behaviour management to partner schools in the area.  The school holds Leading Parent Partnership Award and Investors in People, both recently renewed.
