School Description

Dycorts School opened as a new school in September 2015 when it converted to academy status. It is one of three special schools in the Trust, the other schools being situated in Havering and Waltham Forest. The school joined the Hornbeam Academy Trust after the inadequate judgement and closure of its predecessor school, following an inspection in December 2014. The Hornbeam Academy Trust, in operation since September 2012, is a small special school academy trust. The five members act as custodians, while the board of trustees collectively oversees the management and administration of the Trust as a whole, delegating authority and responsibility to the strategic advisory board (local governing bodies) as required. The school uses one Ofsted-rated ‘good’, alternative provider, Quarls College (part of Havering College), to extend the provision for its most-able key stage 4 pupils. There are 87 pupils on roll, all of whom have an education, health and care plan. Inspection report: Dycorts School, 19–20 June 2018 Page 7 of 10 Pupils have a wide range of needs, and an increasing number have severe learning difficulties as well as autistic spectrum disorders. The school also caters for pupils who have moderate learning difficulties. Almost one in two pupils is disadvantaged. This is much higher than the national average. Pupils are from a range of ethnic backgrounds, the largest being White British. There are no post-16 students. Currently there are two Reception-age children who attend a mixed, early years primary class. The school benefits from a wide range of expertise within the multi-academy trust. The current principal transferred from within the trust in January 2018.
