Description of the school

Weydon School is a comprehensive foundation school with specialist status in Science. It has been awarded the Basic Skills Quality Mark and the FMSIS Charter Mark, together with the Investors in People accreditation in recognition of the excellence it has attained in these areas. There are low proportions of students from minority ethnic backgrounds, those for whom English is not the first language, and those who are in receipt of free school meals.

The most common heritage language spoken is Urdu, as the school draws students from a small local Muslim community. The proportions of students with learning difficulties and/or disabilities, including those with statements of special education...al needs, is similar to that found in most schools. These include behavioural, emotional, social and communication needs, dyslexia, and autistic spectrum disorder.

Absence and persistent absence is significantly low. The school has a Respite Centre in the town centre for vulnerable students who receive specialist support within the Centre. The school also has family learning provision on site used by local communities.
