School Description

The school opened as an independent school for up to 20 pupils in September 2017, following its registration with the Department for Education as a day school in August 2017. Prior to its registration, the school was operating as an alternative provider, since October 2016, with 18 part-time pupils who attended for two days per week in partnership with Inspection report: E-Spired, 24–26 April 2018 Page 7 of 10 local schools. This is its first standard inspection. The school complies with its registration requirements as specified in the government information about the school. There are currently 10 full-time pupils on roll in Years 10 and 11 including some who are receiving full-time home tuition at the request of the local authority. There are six part-time pupils, four of whom are dual registered in mainstream schools, and two students in Year 12, who are attending the school at the request of the local authority to repeat their GCSEs in order to improve their grades. The school caters for pupils who have social, emotional and mental health needs, who have histories of poor attendance and who have failed to thrive in mainstream schools. Some pupils are looked after by their local authority. Four pupils have an education, health and care plan for their special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities. The school has strong links with Bedford College, Bedford Free School and Mark Rutherford School. The school occupies a site within a business park in Bedfordshire and has plans in place to move to new accommodation in August 2018, when it will provide full-time sixth-form provision. The school is owned by the E-Spired Community Interest Company. There is a sole proprietor and a board of directors. Two directors of the company work full time in the school as the principal and the business manager. A governing body was appointed in the school from January 2017.
