Ofsted school description
Moorbridge is currently in a transition phase, being subject to local authority reorganisation. There are 17 boys and 8 girls. Key Stage 4 pupils are identified as vulnerable or emotionally fragile and find it difficult to attend a mainstream school. Key Stage 3 pupils have been excluded from mainstream school and can present very challenging behaviour. The majority of these pupils move on to other specialist provision. On entry, pupils’ achievements are low because of their disrupted education which is often associated with poor attendance. Most pupils are of White British heritage. A very small minority of pupils are in the care of the local authority and a high percentage is eligible for free school meals.
