School Description

The Orchard is a school for pupils with severe learning difficulties or profound and multiple learning difficulties. Many pupils have additional complex learning needs, including visual and hearing impairment, and autistic spectrum disorders. It is a designated teaching school, providing support and training to other schools in the local authority, training staff for National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs) and working in partnership with the University of Wolverhampton to train teachers. The proportion of pupils who benefit from the pupil premium (additional government funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, or who are in the care of the local authority) is far above average. The proportion who are from minority ethnic communities and also speak English as an additional language is well above average. Every pupil has a statement of special educational needs or is undergoing formal assessment prior to gaining a statement. Since the last inspection a new headteacher has been appointed. As part of restructuring of the leadership team, one of the assistant headteachers was appointed as an additional deputy headteacher.
