School Description

The Hackney City Farm School operates as an alternative education provider for pupils with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties. The school opened in 2005 within a farm that is open to the public. It gained registration as an independent school in 2015. This was the school’s second standard inspection. It was judged to be inadequate at the time of its first standard inspection as a number of the independent school standards were unmet. The school had an unannounced monitoring inspection in October 2016, when it was judged that the school met the previously unmet independent school Inspection report: Hackney City Farm, 13–15 March 2018 Page 7 of 10 standards. The school is registered to admit up to 10 pupils aged from 13 to 17. None of the pupils currently on roll are in the sixth form. Three of the pupils have an education, health and care plan. Pupils are referred to the school by New Regent’s College in Hackney, the local authority pupil referral unit, which commissions alternative provision for key stage 4 pupils. Most of them continue to be jointly registered with the school which they originally attended. The proprietor is the chair of trustees of Hackney City Farm Limited There is a board of three governors, which includes the farm manager. Since July 2016, the proprietor and governors appointed an education lead to support leaders in securing further improvements to the school. The school’s aims are to ‘engage, nurture, care and prepare pupils for their future lives’. The school does not use any other alternative provision.
