School Description

The Red Balloon Learning Centre Reading is a co-educational independent day school for students in the age range 11 to 16 years. The school’s stated aim is ‘to restore children’s selfesteem, get them back on an academic track and support their return to mainstream education or entry to employment’. There are currently 11 students on roll of whom six are male and five are female. Six students have a statement of special educational needs. Occasionally, students are dually registered at local authority schools and attend part time. The school provides additional provision in the form of links with relevant agencies and links with a local college of further education. Use is also made of local libraries and London museums and galleries. Students are placed here by local authorities and all have behavioural, emotional and social difficulties. These difficulties have resulted in all students showing a strong reluctance to engage in learning and some have experienced sustained periods out of full-time education. The school was first registered in March 2012 and this is the school’s first full inspection.
