School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
The majority of pupils have a statement of special educational needs, although some children in the Early Years Foundation Stage are in the school for assessment and do not yet have a statement. The school provides for severe and profound multiple learning difficulties or autistic spectrum condition.

This large special school draws the majority of pupils from North Tyneside local authority. There are two sites: one for the Early Years Foundation Stage, primary and secondary age pupils; the other for post 16 provision is located five miles away in Queen Alexandra College, North Shields. The vast majority of pupils are boys of White British origin.

The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is below the national average.

The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds is lower than the national average.

One-third of pupils are supported by the pupil premium. This is additional funding for those pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals, children from service families and those children who are looked after by the local authority. The school is a regional centre for Tyne and Wear training for independent travelling.

The school provides an outreach service for sensory impairment and portage services on behalf of the local authority.

The school has Basic Skills Quality Mark, Investors in People Gold, International Schools and Eco Schools award.
