School Description

White Spire School provides education for pupils with moderate learning difficulties. However, an increasing percentage of pupils have additional needs associated with: autism spectrum disorder; speech, language and communication needs; or sensory and/or physical needs. All pupils who attend the school have an education, health and care plan. Around half of the pupils meet the criteria for pupil premium as a result of being looked after or eligible for free school meals. This is above the national average. The school works in partnership with a range of external agencies, including speech and language therapists, health and social care professionals and paediatricians. Inspection report: White Spire School, 22–23 January 2019 Page 7 of 10 Since the school’s last inspection, in 2014, pupils are now admitted into Year 1. The school does not place any pupils in alternative provision.
