School Description

Ty Coryton provides a specialist integrated day and residential service for children and young people between the ages of eight and nineteen years who have a diagnosis of autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) including challenging behaviour. In addition, many pupils have speech, communication and language difficulties and around half of pupils do not communicate using speech. The majority have severe learning difficulties. There are currently 21 pupils on roll. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs (SEN) or an education, health and care plan (EHCP). Nearly all current pupils are placed by authorities in Wales. Just under half of the young people are in the care of their local authority. The school is accommodated in a large mansion house on the outskirts of Cardiff and is administered by Orbis Education and Care. Five pupils are resident in the Ty Coryton children’s home that has separate purpose-built accommodation on-site. The head of education has been in post since October 2018. The school was last inspected in January 2020. Since then, there has been a reduction in the number of pupils who attend the school from the on-site residential children’s home. These pupils continue to have school support from the residential care staff during the school day. In response to the increase in day pupil numbers there has been a rise in the numbers of learning support staff directly employed and managed by the school. In January 2022, the Welsh Government requested Estyn to undertake a focused inspection of the school, with a particular focus on the school's safeguarding procedures, effective deployment and training of residential care and learning support staff and the impact of this on the teaching and learning experiences for pupils. Inspectors assessed the school’s compliance with relevant aspects of standards 1 and 3 of the Independent School Standards (Wales) Regulations 2003. During the inspection, inspectors undertook learning walks and talked to pupils, met with staff and scrutinised records and documentation.
