School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
This is a special educational needs academy for primary-aged pupils, all of whom have a statement of special educational needs for moderate learning difficulties, autistic spectrum disorders or speech, language and communication needs. Approximately half the pupils have been identified with varying degrees of autism.

The majority of pupils have additional needs including complex syndromes, specific learning difficulties, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. The proportion of pupils for whom the academy receives the pupil premium (additional government funding, in this case for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals or in local authority care) is above average. Most pupils are from White British backgrounds and a few speak English as an additional language.

There are approximately twice as many boys as girls on roll.

The academy provides outreach support for approximately 100 schools in its catchment area. The former Woolgrove School converted to a special school academy in April 2012. At that time, it changed its designation from moderate learning difficulties to moderate learning difficulties, autistic spectrum disorders and speech, language and communication needs. This is its first inspection as an academy.
