School Description

Blue Mountain Education is an independent special school for pupils who have behavioural, emotional and social needs. It opened in April 2006, and is owned by Blue Mountain Homes. The school provides education for eight full-time pupils, who are not attending mainstream education. The school is registered to admit pupils between the ages of eight and 18. Currently there are no pupils on roll who are above the age of compulsory education and who are studying 16–19 study programmes. The school provides education for its pupils at two sites. Most pupils receive their education at Willow Farm. Some pupils receive their education at the Toll House site. The school has a further site at which leaders propose to provide education. This is at Bluebell House at New Ollerton. Currently, there is no educational provision at this site. Inspection report: Blue Mountain Education, 20–21 June 2017 Page 8 of 11 The school received a material change inspection in January 2017. This inspection was in relation to the opening of the educational provisions at Toll House and Bluebell House. The inspection judged that the Toll House site was likely to meet the independent school standards, but that the Bluebell House site was not. The school’s previous standard inspection took place on 11–13 June 2014. All of the pupils are in the care of the local authority. They are all resident in children’s homes that Blue Mountain Homes owns. There are a range of local authorities that use the services of the school to educate the children who are in their care. The school does not currently make use of any alternative provision. An inspection of the children’s home that is situated on the Willow Farm site took place at the same time as the standard inspection of Blue Mountain Education.
