School Description

This school caters for primary and secondary-aged pupils from across East Kent. The primary pupils have social, emotional and behaviour difficulties. Not all of them transfer to the secondary department at the age of 11. Some re-integrate into mainstream schools and others go on to secondary behaviour placements. There are no pupils under the age of six currently at the school. Secondary students have social, emotional and mental health needs and usually stay at the school until the end of Year 11. All students at St. Anthony's have a statement of special educational needs. About a quarter of students also have a diagnosis of autism spectrum conditions. Many students have been out of school for some considerable time before they start at the school. Almost all students are of White British heritage and no students speak English as an additional language. The proportion of students eligible for the pupil premium is well above average. This is additional government funding for disadvantaged pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals and for those who are looked after. The school also receives primary school physical education and sport additional funding. Some students in Key Stage 4 attend accredited vocational courses at East Kent College. Other students in Key Stage 4 have a wide range of alternative placement opportunities to learn about the world of work. These include a local farm, local businesses and a centre for military programmes. The school is currently undergoing considerable re-development and a new sports hall is about to be opened. The headteacher was on a residential trip to Wales with some students in Year 10 during the inspection.
