School Description

Bramfield House is a residential special school for boys aged seven to 16 years who have social, emotional and mental health needs. Pupils have often been out of school for long periods prior to admission. Each pupil has an education, health and care plan or a statement of special educational needs and is funded by their local authority. There are 13 pupils who are looked after by their local authority. Since the previous inspections of the residential provision (November 2015) and the education (November 2012), there has been a significant increase in the number of day pupils, with a reduction in the number of residents. Of the 72 pupils on roll, there are 48 day pupils and 24 in residence. Since the previous inspections, a head of education has been appointed and there has been a significant turnover of staff. The residential accommodation consists of a main house situated in 10 acres of gardens and 1 mile from the centre of the village of Bramfield. The classroom facilities, which have recently been refurbished and extended, are separately located within the grounds. Since the previous inspection there have been considerable improvements to the accommodation, with newly refurbished teaching areas and outdoor play areas. The school was established 46 years ago. Originally owned by a private individual, the school is now one of several similar schools owned by Acorn Care and Education. A chair of governors oversees the work of the school on behalf of the proprietors. The school uses one alternative provider at Easton College, Norfolk, for a very small number of pupils who attend for one day per week for animal care studies. The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website.
