School Description

Greenfields is an independent special school located in a suburb of Newport. The school opened in 2006 and is part of the CareTech Community Services group that owns a group of six independent schools in England and Wales. The school provides education for pupils aged 11 to 18 years who have social, emotional and behavioural difficulties and who reside locally in the company’s children’s homes. At the time of the inspection, five pupils aged 13 to 16 years were attending the school. All of the pupils are children looked after by a local authority or voluntary accommodated from placing authorities in England and Wales. Three pupils have a statement of special educational needs. The school aims to provide ‘a positive and supportive educational environment for all learners by creating a safe learning space, building effective teacher-pupil relationships and identification of individual learning needs’. The school also aims to prepare its ‘learners for their future by providing them with opportunities to gain qualifications and participate in work and college placements’. Estyn last inspected the school in May 2011. Since the last inspection, there has been significant change in staffing and leadership at the school. The current headteacher has been in post since January 2016, and the majority of teaching staff are relatively new to post. As there are five pupils at the school, inspectors did not give a judgement for Key Question 1, standards or wellbeing. This is because the number of pupils was too few to report on without identifying individual pupils.
