School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Ratcliffe is a small special school for pupils with interaction, communication and social development needs.

A large proportion of pupils have been identified with autistic spectrum condition. An increasing number of pupils enter the school with complex emotional and social difficulties. There are currently 32 pupils who are resident at the school.

All pupils have a statement of special educational needs. Most pupils are boys.

The proportion of pupils for whom the school receives pupil premium funding (additional funding allocated by the government for pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals and who are looked after by the local authority) is above average. However, the numbers at the end of Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 4 are small. Last year, three pupils received the Year 7 catch-up funding, and currently two pupils are in receipt of this additional funding.

Almost all pupils are of White British heritage and none speak English as an additional language.

A significant proportion of the pupils start at the school at times other than the beginning of the school year. Throughout the year, a number of pupils are educated at the following provision: Advantage Point; Exeter College; Bicton College; South Devon College; Hair Academy @ The Deaf Academy; and Sirona Therapeutic Horsemanship workshop in Seale Hayne. The school is part of the SENtient Trust formed in 2012 and made up of 10 special schools.

The headteacher became executive headteacher of Oaklands, an adjacent special school, in September 2014.
