School Description

Priory Hurworth House School accepts up to 67 pupils aged between 5 and 19 years with complex social and emotional needs. Pupils attending the school at the time of the inspection were between Years 3 and 13. The school has two discrete departments. The primary department currently has 17 pupils between Years 3 and 8. The secondary department currently has 33 pupils on role between years 8 and 13. At times, older secondary-aged pupils attend work-based placements and other education providers. Occasionally, pupils are educated at other sites, with the school’s education Inspection report: Priory Hurworth House, 20–22 November 2018 Page 7 of 10 staff, on a temporary basis. At the time of the inspection, four pupils were attending alternative education providers. No pupils were on work-based placements. The school currently uses Middlesbrough College and Darlington College as alternative education providers. All pupils currently attending have a statement of special education needs or an education, health and care plan. Pupils have previously disengaged from education, and the school aims to provide pupils with an environment where they feel safe and are willing to engage in learning again. The school was last inspected in November 2015, when it was judged to be good in all aspects. The school strategic governance is through a governing body, who then report to the Priory Education Group company board. None of the members of the governing body are members of the company board.
