School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Belmont is a small special school in which all pupils have a statement of special educational needs. The local authority proposes to transfer from statements to Education and Health Care Plans over the next two years so presently no pupils have such plans. Pupils are identified as having moderate and additional learning difficulties and this includes pupils with complex difficulties. The proportion of pupils who start school after the age of five and at different times in the school year is much higher than is typical.

There are many more boys than girls. More than half of the pupils are disadvantaged and entitled to additional government funding known as the pupil premium. This funding is used to support pupils who are entitled to free school meals and those who are looked after by the local authority.

Year 7 pupils receive literacy and numeracy catch-up funding and the school also receives primary school PE and sports funding. The school does not enter pupils for examinations early. Nearly all pupils are of White British heritage and a very small number speak English as an additional language.

Since the previous inspection, the former senior management team has retired. A new headteacher and deputy headteacher have been appointed and at the time of the inspection had been in post for six weeks.

Two assistant headteachers have been promoted from within the school. Pupil numbers are increasing.
