School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
High Close is a non-maintained special school with some boarding provision that is one of the Barnados' family of schools. All the pupils have a statement of special educational needs, the vast majority for emotional, behavioural and social difficulties and over half also have at least three other identified needs including speech, language and communication, autistic spectrum conditions, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and other medical needs. The primary unit was started in February 2011 and has 12 places for Key Stage 2 pupils, three of whom are currently resident. The remaining school pupils are in Key Stages 3 and 4, 28 boarders and 38 day pupils. The boarding provision is subject to a separate inspection.

Pupils have been placed by 18 different local authorities and many have experienced considerable changes in education and home life.

The proportion of pupils looked after by local authorities and those known to be eligible for free school meals is much higher than average. The school does receive some pupil premium (additional government funding) but not for all pupils that are eligible.

There is no alternative provision used by the school.
