School Description

Elms School is a special school for pupils aged five to 16 years of age. All pupils have education, health and care plans to support them with their complex behavioural, emotional and social difficulties. Many have additional learning difficulties. Some have autistic spectrum disorders. The vast majority of pupils are boys. The headteacher joined the school in September 2015, following a period of leadership and staffing turbulence. The current leadership team has been formed since that time. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for pupil premium funding and/or the Year 7 catch-up funding is much higher than the national average. A small number of pupils attend alternative provision at Aspire Academy. The school is part of the Kent Special Educational Needs Trust (KSENT), working collaboratively with other special schools in Kent. The school does not meet requirements on the publication of information on its Inspection report: Elms School, 18–19 October 2017 Page 8 of 11 website. The website does not include information about the curriculum or the difference the additional funding for primary sports and Year 7 literacy and numeracy catch-up has made.
