School Description

Rowhill is larger than the average-sized special school. The vast majority of pupils are boys. The schools serves pupils aged seven to 16 who have social, emotional and mental health difficulties. Secondary-aged pupils also have cognition and learning difficulties. A significant number of pupils have additional needs associated with autism or communication difficulties, for example. All pupils have an education, health and care plan. The school is organised in two phases: primary and secondary. Firm plans are established to offer provision for pupils aged 16 years and over, from September 2016. Many pupils receive help from other agencies, such as social services, the youth offending service and child and adolescent mental health services. Approximately 10% of pupils are looked after by the local authority. Very few pupils live locally to the school. The vast majority use school transport to travel to and from school each day. There are 75% of pupils supported through the pupil premium (additional government funding for pupils eligible for free school meals and those who are looked after by the local authority). Almost without exception, pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is very small. Some secondary-aged pupils receive part of their education with other providers, such as Challenger Troop and Write Trak. The school provides a daily breakfast club on site. The school manages the local authority’s specialist teaching and learning services, which are based on the premises. This service provides specialist teaching to pupils with special educational needs or disability in north Kent schools, and training and support for staff. The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website.
