School Description

The previous standard inspection was conducted 24–26 January 2017. The school received a progress monitoring inspection on 20 September 2017. Draycott Moor college is a small independent school situated in the village of Draycott Moor. The Horizon Care and Education Group operate the provision along with that in six other schools across England. The school caters for pupils with a range of complex needs. Most pupils are placed at the school by neighbouring local authorities. All pupils have an education, health and care plan. The school does not use any alternative provision. Inspection report: Draycott Moor College, 5–7 February 2019 Page 8 of 10 Information about this inspection The DfE asked Ofsted to consider as part of the inspection a request for a material change to the school’s registration. The school wishes to increase the number of pupils it admits from 22 to 36. The inspector observed teaching and learning in every class. Pupils’ work was scrutinised during observations and in separate meetings with leaders. Most observations were undertaken jointly with leaders. Meetings were held to discuss the school’s effectiveness. The inspector scrutinised a range of documentation, and undertook a tour of the school premises, to check that the independent school standards were being consistently met. The inspector took account of feedback from two parents via free-text. There were insufficient responses to the Parent View survey to generate a report. The inspector reviewed four responses to the pupil survey and two responses to the staff survey. The inspector spoke with staff and pupils throughout the inspection. The inspector met with the school’s proprietor and Horizon’s managing director of education. The inspector held a discussion with an officer from the school’s major placing authority.
