School Description

Cressex Lodge (SWAAY) is an independent school for boys located in a village near Bracknell. It operates collaboratively as part of a therapeutic community provided by SWAAY Child and Adolescent Services Ltd that includes six children’s homes, operational for 52 weeks of the year. Most pupils reside in the company’s children’s homes. The school opened in 2006 and it is registered for up to 18 boys, aged between 11 and 16 years, who have specific behavioural, emotional, and social difficulties. Pupils join the school with a history of interrupted schooling and generally remain at the school for approximately two years. Inspection report: Cressex Lodge (SWAAY), 4–6 July 2017 Page 9 of 12 There are currently 15 boys on roll aged between 13 and 17 years, some of whom have moderate, specific and complex learning difficulties. The vast majority of pupils have been placed by their local authority. Approximately 11 local authorities use the school to place pupils. Approximately half of the school’s population are in receipt of an education, health and care plan as they are pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities. The school was last inspected in September 2012 when it did not meet all of the independent school standards. In February 2013, November 2013 and July 2014 the school received three progress monitoring visits and was found to not meet all the independent school standards including those relating to the curriculum. The school aims to ‘provide each pupil with an education for life, by valuing and respecting them as individuals, developing their self-esteem, relationships and attachments, encouraging their individual abilities to their full potential in a caring and orderly environment’. The school does not use alternative providers.
