School Description

In January 2016, Turney School became part of a hard federation with Lansdowne Special School, which is also in Lambeth. The schools share a governing body and an executive headteacher. Each has a head of school. Lansdowne Special School is subject to a separate inspection. In September 2015, the school opened a post-16 provision for students with complex learning difficulties up to the age of 19. Pupils have autistic spectrum disorder or speech and language difficulties. Most pupils have other associated learning difficulties. All have a statement of special educational needs or an education, health and care plan. Inspection report: Turney Primary and Secondary Special School, 23–24 May 2018 Page 9 of 12 Almost all pupils are eligible for the pupil premium funding. Four out of five pupils are boys. Pupils are from a wide range of ethnic backgrounds, with half the pupils speaking English as an additional language. There are currently nine Reception-aged children. The school uses one alternative provider, Roots and Shoots, in Lambeth. There have been a number of staffing appointments since the last inspection, including several new teachers, a head of school and assistant headteacher.
