School Description

The Complete Works is an independent school which offers alternative provision for boys and girls aged between five and 16 years. These pupils are placed at the school by a variety of local authorities and schools. Current pupils are aged between six and 16 years. Currently, there are 122 pupils on roll. The material change inspection of July 2017 recommended extension of the age range from 14 to 16 to five to 16 and a maximum of 194 pupils. The vast majority of pupils have SEN and/or disabilities. These include social, emotional Inspection report: The Complete Works Independent School, 15–17 May 2018 Page 8 of 11 and mental health difficulties, and additional learning and/or medical needs. The school operates from its registered head office at 38 Commercial Street, London E1 6LP. Pupils attend three sites: 58 Underwood Road, London E1 5AW; 43 Old Jamaica Road, London SE16 4TE; and 5 Thrawl Street, London E1 6RT. The school accommodates up to 54 pupils across its three premises. It currently also provides placements for an additional 68 pupils more flexibly, for example in libraries or in pupils’ homes. Some of these pupils attend one of the three centres when deemed ready to integrate socially. All pupils have their own individual timetable. The nature of provision for those taught offsite is usually one-to-one. The school employs 116 teachers, of which 24 are salaried staff, and the majority are contracted through flexible contracts and work as required. The school was last inspected in February 2014, when its overall effectiveness was judged to be good. The school does not use the services of any other alternative providers. The school’s aim is to educate young people creatively so as to improve their behaviour and attitudes to learning and thereby enhance their achievement and access to further education, employment or training. The current headteacher and CEO have been in post for two years.
