School Description

This is an independent special school for pupils who struggle with mainstream schooling or in a regular learning environment. The school opened in March 2018 and since then numbers have increased to 17 on roll. Currently, five pupils attend full time and 12 pupils attend on a part-time basis. There are never more than 12 pupils in school on any one day. The school is situated on a working farm in a rural area of south Cumbria. Pupils are accommodated in two purpose-built, temporary cabins installed within a large Dutch barn. All pupils have been referred by their local authority or by educational psychologists or Inspection report: SwitchED2, 20–22 November 2018 Page 8 of 11 other agencies. All pupils currently on roll have special educational needs and/or disabilities or an education, health and care plan. Most pupils are from White British backgrounds. An above-average number of pupils are looked after by the local authority. Pupils are taught in mixed-age classes. One class is for pupils in upper key stage 2 and key stage 3, and there is a key stage 4 class. The school does not use alternative providers. The school was registered with the DfE in February 2018. This is the school’s first standard inspection.
