School Description

This is a primary special school for children aged 3–11 with severe and complex learning difficulties; 77% have severe learning difficulties and 23% have profound and multiple learning difficulties. All pupils have statements of special educational needs. The majority of pupils have significant secondary special educational needs, including over 45% who are on the autistic spectrum. Provision for the Early Years Foundation Stage is based in two mixed Nursery/Reception classes and one mixed Reception/Year 1 class. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for support through additional pupil premium funding is above the national average. This is additional government funding provided for pupils eligible for free school meals, those looked after by the local authority and those with a parent in the armed services. Most pupils are from minority ethnic groups and over half of the school population are of Asian or Asian British heritage; over 65% of pupils speak English as an additional language. The school has achieved the Investors In People Silver Award, the Healthy Schools Award, National Autistic Society accreditation and the Inclusion Quality Mark.
