School Description

EdStart is an independent day school which provides alternative provision for pupils aged between 13 and 16. The headteacher is also a director of EdStart and co-proprietor of the school. At the time of the inspection, there were 87 pupils on roll. There are no disabled pupils. The school provides full-time education for pupils who have previously had significant difficulties with their behaviour in school and were at risk of permanent exclusion. Nearly all pupils have special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), mainly related to social, emotional and mental health issues. Inspection report: Edstart, 5–7 March 2019 Page 8 of 11 Twelve pupils have an education, health and care plan. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils is above average. The school’s main site is located in Salford, where there are 25 pupils on roll. There are three additional sites: one in Wythenshawe, on the outskirts of Manchester, with provision for 20 Year 10 and 11 pupils with 24 on roll; one in Bolton for 15 Year 9 to 11 pupils with 15 currently on roll; and one in Bury for 20 Year 9 to 11 pupils with 20 currently on roll. No pupils travel between sites. The school does not use alternative providers. The school works closely with Manchester PRU and is part of its alternative provision network. The school aims to ‘offer a secure and structured environment promoting positive behaviour where disaffected and permanently excluded young people develop as confident and independent learners… target social and emotional and behavioural skills and educational progress in order that young people achieve their full potential’.
