Independent preparatory schools do not have to follow the National Curriculum or submit test results to the Department for Education so there is no individual school performance data or star rating.

Visit the school's website to learn more about their unique curriculum, policies on testing and common leaver destinations (a good indicator of pupil progress). See our About page for information on Choosing A Prep School.

School Description

Gesher is a primary special school that caters for pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities. Although the school’s religious ethos is Jewish, it admits pupils from all faiths. Most pupils have speech, language, communication and social needs. The school specialises in supporting pupils who have autism spectrum disorder. The school opened in September 2017. Currently, there are two classes: one for children in the early years and one for pupils in key stage 1. Most pupils have an education, health and care plan and are funded by their local authority. This was the school’s first standard inspection. Inspection report: Gesher Primary Special School, 5–7 June 2018 Page 10 of 12 Information about this inspection This inspection took place with one day’s notice. At the request of the DfE, the inspector was asked to consider the school’s application for a material change to increase the number of pupils on roll from 14 to 40, to increase the age range of pupils on roll from four to seven to four to 11 and to consider the suitability of the proposed new classrooms. As part of this inspection, the DfE commissioned Ofsted to consider the school’s application to make a material change to its registration. The school applied to the DfE to increase the capacity to admit up to 40 pupils and to increase the age range of pupils from four to seven to four to 11. The inspector observed teaching and learning across all year groups and subjects. He spoke to pupils informally throughout the inspection and observed them at playtime and lunchtime. The inspector held meetings with the headteacher and deputy headteacher to evaluate the effectiveness of leadership on teaching and learning. He met with all members of staff, including therapists, to discuss their roles and the impact of their work on pupils’ learning and development. Meetings were held with the trustees and governors and with the educational psychologist. The inspector spoke to four parents during the inspection and considered the 19 responses to Parent View, Ofsted’s online survey. He considered 10 responses to the staff survey. The inspector looked at pupils’ work with teachers. He looked at records of pupils’ learning, the online tool that captures their achievements and a variety of individual education plans and behaviour plans. The inspector considered the school’s documentation relating to safeguarding, and scrutinised other policies and procedures to check the school’s compliance with the independent school standards.
