School Description

The school caters for pupils who are supported by an education, health and care plan for their learning difficulties and additional needs. A growing number of pupils also have a diagnosis of an autism spectrum disorder and a few have severe learning difficulties and/or social, emotional and behaviour difficulties. The proportion of pupils eligible for the pupil premium is above average. The nearby Brooklands College provides off-site training in vocational education for pupils in Years 10 and 11 for half a day each week. The school uses one alternative provider ‘Steps to 16’ in Woking. The school is led by two co-headteachers who share the role. One is due to retire at Easter 2019, at which time the other is due to become the full-time headteacher. Inspection report: The Park School, 5 and 7 March 2019 Page 7 of 9 Information about this inspection The inspection began on 5 March as a short inspection of an outstanding special school. The lead inspector evaluated that the school may have declined to require improvement and/or safeguarding may be ineffective. As a result, a follow-on Section 5 inspection took place within 48 hours on 7 March led by one of Her Majesty’s Inspectors. Meetings were held with the co-headteachers throughout the inspection. Inspectors also met with other leaders, including the assistant headteachers and the SENCo. An inspector also met with a representative group of staff. Inspectors observed learning across the school, making visits to classrooms with the co-headteachers. During these classroom visits, inspectors also spoke to pupils about their learning and looked at examples of their work. An inspector met with pupils who belong to the school council. All inspectors talked to pupils informally around the school. Inspectors held two meetings with members of the governing body. They held telephone conversations with the school’s improvement adviser and with the local authority inclusion team. A wide range of documentation was scrutinised, including documents relating to safeguarding and governance. Inspectors considered 20 responses to the online questionnaire Parent View, including 16 free-text comments. Inspectors also reviewed 39 responses to the confidential staff survey.
