School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
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.
