School Description

The Garth School is a small special school that caters for pupils aged from two to 19 years with a range of severe and profound learning difficulties, including some pupils with a diagnosis of autism. In addition, a number of pupils have complex medical conditions. All have education, health and care plans or are in the process of being assessed for an education, health and care plan. Garth School forms part of The Spalding Special Schools Federation with The Priory School, a secondary phased school for pupils with moderate learning difficulties. An executive headteacher leads both schools and they share a governing body. Most typically pupils will enter the school between the ages of three and five, however it is not uncommon for pupils to enter at other key stages. The school’s catchment area includes South Holland and surrounding districts, including the market towns of Spalding, Boston, Holbeach and Long Sutton. There is a high proportion of pupils who are eligible for additional government pupil premium funding, which provides support for pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those who are looked after. At the time of inspection, there were two pupils in the early years provision, both of whom attend full time. The large majority of pupils are White British, with a small number from a diverse range of minority ethnic heritages. Pupils in Key Stage 4 and in the sixth form benefit from attending a multi-skills link course at New College Stamford. The executive headteacher is Chair of the Lincolnshire Special Schools’ group which comprises of 21 special schools across Lincolnshire. They work in close partnership to provide training and network opportunities for its staff. The school has gained several Kitemarks, including Healthy Schools, the International Schools Award and AIM for Links Autism Inclusion Mark.
