School Description

The Potteries school opened in November 2012. The classroom is based in a large house in Abermule near Newtown, which is also a children’s home. The Potteries is an assessment centre. Nearly all pupils attend a 26-week programme, which includes a 16-week assessment, before moving on to long-term placements. The proprietor, CareTech UK, is a limited company, which owns children’s homes across England and Wales. The children’s home is registered with CCSIW for up to four young people aged 10 to 18. There are currently three pupils on roll. All are placed by and looked after by English local authorities and have education and health care plans. The primary identified need is social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. The school provides full-time education for all the young people placed in the children’s home. Residential care workers support the headteacher on a day-to-day basis. They attend educational visits and sports activities with the pupils during the school day. A head of education oversees the education provision across the company’s schools. The headteacher has been in post since 2010. This is the school’s first full inspection.

The Potteries Catchment Area Map

This school is independently managed and its admission criteria may be selective. There is no set catchment area as pupils are admitted from a wide variety of postcodes and, in the case of boarding schools, from outside the UK.
