School Description

Tŷ 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 also. There are currently 23 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. Eleven pupils are resident in the Tŷ Coryton children’s home that has separate purpose-built accommodation on-site. It is not appropriate to compare the standards pupils achieve at Tŷ Coryton with national averages or to analyse trends in performance over time because of the nature of pupils’ special educational needs. The head of education has been in post since October 2018 and reports to the organisation’s director of children’s services.

Most pupils form trusting relationships with staff and become increasingly tolerant of others. Teachers create positive and calming classroom routines that maximise learning. The school has a well-planned approach for the progressive development of pupils’ skills and many pupils engage consistently well in their learning and respond enthusiastically. Many pupils develop important independence skills such as selfcare, handling money and food preparation. Multi-disciplinary working is a significant strength of the school and is highly effective in meeting the needs of pupils. Leaders have strengthened the aims and vision for the school and there are suitable improvement priorities that focus clearly on further developing the quality of provision for all pupils.
