A Parent's Guide to Choosing a Special School


School Description

The Old School House is an independent special school for boys aged between 9 and 16 years. The school provides education for up to six pupils with social, emotional and mental health difficulties. Some pupils at the school are children who are looked after. The proprietor, and the director of social care, provide the governance for the school. At its previous inspection, the school’s overall effectiveness and all key judgement areas were assessed as good. All of the independent school regulations were met. The headteacher took up her post in September 2016. Pupils often presented challenging behaviour in their previous schools. Many pupils have experienced disruption in their previous education. All pupils on roll have education, health and care plans. Local authorities fund pupils’ placements at the school. Since the previous standard inspection, the school requested a material change to extend Inspection report: The Old School House, 19–20 September 2017 Page 8 of 11 the lower age range of pupils to 7 years. The inspector considered this during this inspection, and judged that the school was likely to meet the relevant independent school standards should the material change be implemented. This inspection was aligned with the welfare inspection. A copy of that report is published separately on Ofsted’s website. The school does not use any alternative provision.
