A Parent's Guide to Choosing a Special School


School Description

ISP School (Kent) is a small special school located in rural Kent. All pupils have an education, health and care plan. Pupils have social, emotional and mental health difficulties or autistic spectrum disorder as their primary need. A few pupils have additional needs, such as speech, language and communication difficulties. Many pupils have had periods of time out of school or have been excluded from their previous schools. The school is registered for pupils who are aged between seven and 18. Currently, pupils on roll are aged between seven and 16. The percentage of pupils who are disadvantaged is well above the national average. At the previous standard inspection in June 2017, the school was graded as inadequate, Inspection report: ISP School (Kent), 15–17 January 2019 Page 7 of 10 with several unmet independent school standards. At the monitoring visit in May 2018 all the independent school standards that were checked were found to be met. A material change inspection took place in October 2018. This was commissioned because the school proposed to increase the pupil numbers from 34 to 42. To facilitate these extra pupils the school built a new teaching block at its site at Teynham. All pupils are now educated at Teynham. The school has very recently closed its other site at Church Street, Sittingbourne, Kent, ME10 3EG, which was the school’s registered address. The Department for Education has been advised. In the last year there have been several staffing changes. The headteacher joined the school in January 2018. Around 40% of staff joined the school in the last year. The school is part of a company called Integrated Services Programme (ISP). ISP is part of the Partnership in Children’s Services Group (PICS), which until 17 January 2019 was owned by Sovereign Capital Investments. On 17 January 2019, Sovereign Capital Investments sold PICS to Core Assets Group, Capvest Ltd. The Department for Education has been advised. The school uses no alternative providers.
