Highlights from Latest Inspection

Ysgol y Gogarth is a day and residential special school situated in the coastal town of Llandudno. It is the only special school maintained by Conwy local authority.

Currently there are 223 pupils on roll aged from 3 to 19. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs for moderate and severe learning difficulties, profound and multiple learning difficulties or autistic spectrum disorders (ASD). Most pupils come from the Conwy local authority area and a very few come from neighbouring local authorities.

Nearly all of the pupils are from English-speaking backgrounds. Around 38% of pupils are eligible for free school meals. A few pupils are looked after by the local authority.

The school manages a residen...tial facility that offers short-term placements for pupils who attend the school. The school also provides a base for a number of other key services, including the children with disabilities social work team, the ASD outreach team, the sensory support service and child development centre for Conwy. Since the last inspection, the school's site and buildings have been significantly redeveloped as part of the Welsh Government's 21st century schools programme.

Ysgol y Gogarth is currently a pioneer school and is working with the Welsh Government and other schools to take forward developments relating to the curriculum. The headteacher has been in post since September 2009. The school was last inspected in June 2011.
