School Description

In September 2011, Wandle Valley became an academy. This is its first inspection. The school provides for students with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties (BESD). An increasing number also has additional learning difficulties and mental health needs. Currently, almost all students are boys. Most students are in the secondary department and there are increasing numbers in the primary department. The majority are from White backgrounds and small minorities are from either Black backgrounds or mixed backgrounds. There are no students from homes where English is not the home language. All students have a statement of special educational needs for BESD. The proportion of students at the school eligible for the pupil premium, which provides additional government funding to support pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, children in local authority care and children from service families, is well above the national average. Currently, there are very few in local authority care and almost all are entitled to free school meals. Students new to the school are admitted at different times throughout the school year. Students are generally not admitted after the end of Year 9. The school uses the local Skills and Integrated Learning Centre (SILC) for two students one day per week, which has continued their placements organised by their previous schools. The school provides a private outreach service available to schools within the local authority.
