School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Foxfield admits students with a wide range of special educational needs with the majority experiencing severe learning difficulties. For some, their needs are profound and most have multiple barriers to learning including physical difficulties, autism and behavioural difficulties. Most students join the school at the beginning of their secondary education and continue to beyond the statutory school leaving age, but they can enrol at any time from 11 to 19. Almost half are known to be eligible for the pupil premium and this is very high compared to most schools nationally.

There are slightly more boys than girls and the great majority come from White British backgrounds. All have a statement of special educational needs.

Since the last inspection changes have been made to the middle management team.

The governing body is at the very early stages of discussing with the Department for Education a possible relocation to new premises.

Foxfield gained the Sports Mark and renewed its Investors in People status in 2010, the Arts Mark (Gold) in 2011 and an Award Scheme Development and Accreditation Network (ASDAN) award in 2012. The school helped the local authority gain the Award for Business Excellence in 2011.
