School Description

Bladon House is a part of the Senad group of schools. The school is an independent special school for boys and girls with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). All pupils have an EHC plan. All pupils have complex needs, including: a diagnosis of autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) and Aperger’s syndrome; speech, language and communication needs; moderate or severe learning difficulties; and social, emotional and mental health mental issues. The Inspection report: Bladon House School, 5 to 7 March 2019 Page 9 of 13 majority of pupils demonstrate challenging behaviour, resulting from their complex needs. Some pupils and students are residents of the children’s homes located on the school site. These children’s homes are part of the Senad group. Ofsted inspects these homes separately to the school. The school is registered to provide education for up to 100 pupils aged between five and 19 years. There are currently 45 pupils on roll. The school works with three alternative providers to provide pupils with some of their education off-site. These are Baby People in Derby, Padley Centre in Derby and Scropton Riding for Disabled in Scropton. The school has four aims, which are that pupils should find a way of life that suits them, achieve a sense of physical and emotional well-being, self-manage behaviour and have maximum opportunities for inclusion and independence. The school’s last standard inspection took place on 4 to 6 May 2016.
