A Parent's Guide to Choosing a Special School


School Description

Begdale House School is a small day school owned by Direct Care Limited. It is situated in a rural location in Cambridgeshire and caters for the needs of up to eight pupils with social, emotional and mental health needs, who are looked after by their local authority. The school does not use any alternative provision for its pupils, nor does it run any offsite units. Approximately half of the pupils have an education, health and care plan and most have histories of poor attendance in their previous schools. Some have not attended school for Inspection report: Begdale House School, 26–28 September 2017 Page 7 of 10 two years. Pupils are admitted to the school at various times during the year and their length of stay varies from three months to two years. The school aims to ensure that pupils reach their full potential within a safe, supportive environment. The school received its last standard inspection in November 2014, when it was judged to be good. At that time, there were very few pupils on roll. Since its last inspection, the numbers of pupils in the school has increased and there are currently seven pupils on roll. There have been significant staff changes since the last inspection. A new headteacher and an additional teacher have recently been appointed and have been in post since September. The previous headteacher works as a part-time teacher at the school.
