An above-average proportion of pupils are known to be eligible for the pupil premium funding. An above-average proportion of pupils have special educational needs. The proportion of pupils with a statement of special educational needs or an education, health and care plan is in line with the national average. The school has a hearing impairment unit, which is run by the local authority. It currently educates six pupils from the academy, who also attend many lessons in the main academy. The academy uses a range of alternative education providers for a small number of pupils: The Educational Excellence and Well-Being College, Croydon; The Skills and Integrated Learning Centre, Croydon, which provides part-time vocational courses; Springboard, Croydon, which supports pupils with mental health needs and the Phil Edwards Support and Assessment Group, which provides short-term respite for pupils facing personal difficulties. The academy meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.
