Ashgate Specialist Primary Support School meets a wide range of disabilities and special
educational needs, including severe and profound and multiple learning difficulties, autistic
spectrum disorders and behavioural, emotional and social difficulties. All pupils have a statement
of special educational needs or are undergoing statutory assessment. The school also provides
outreach support to other primary schools in the locality.
The school has very recently moved into refurbished premises that are attached to a mainstream
primary school. This move has also resulted in a significant increase in pupil numbers and classes.
The school serves Wythenshawe and South Manchester. Both of these districts have been
identified as areas of high social deprivation.
The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium (the additional funding
provided by the government to support particular groups of pupils, including those known to be
eligible for free school meals, those in local authority care and those of service families) is high.
A very high proportion of pupils are known to be eligible for free school meals; very few pupils
are looked after by the local authority.
A higher than average proportion of pupils are from minority ethnic backgrounds and an average
yet increasing number who have English as an additional language.
Eighty per cent of pupils are boys. The school has achieved a gold award in the Healthy School programme and the Active Mark
recognition for physical education.
