School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Kingsdown School is larger than the average secondary school, with specialist provision on site known as `the ASC centre' for up to 15 pupils with autism. There has been a restructure of the leadership in the school, with the introduction of additional middle leaders as directors of learning.

A new Chair of the Governing Body is in post and additional governors have joined the team since the previous inspection.

Most pupils are from White British backgrounds. The proportion of pupils who are eligible for support through the pupil premium funding is below the national average. This is additional government funding to support pupils who are eligible for free school meals and those who are looked after by the local authority.

A small number of pupils in Year 7 are eligible for catch-up funding. This is additional money given by the government to help pupils who enter the school behind other pupils in English and mathematics.

The proportion of pupils with special educational needs or disability is above the national average. The school is working with the White Horse Federation of schools to share best practice and offer peer review. The school is currently receiving support from a national leader of education, an external school improvement partner and an educational consultant.

The school uses alternative providers for a very small number of pupils: Swindon College, Lyndhurst Centre, Riverside and The Hospital Service Education. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.
