A Parent's Guide to Choosing a Special School


School Description

The last full standard inspection of this school was carried out 9–11 May 2017. Since that time, the school has expanded and moved premises. A material change inspection, required to change the details of the school’s registration, took place on 11 September 2018. That inspection found unmet standards. The material change had already been implemented. A subsequent progress monitoring inspection, 9 May 2019, found that the previously unmet standards were all met at that time. Following that inspection, the Department for Education (DfE) commissioned an emergency inspection because of concerns about safeguarding and the quality of leadership and management at the school. That inspection took place on 23 October 2019. It found that some of the independent school standards were unmet. The Secretary of State issued the school with a statutory notice on 18 November 2019, requiring an action plan detailing the steps that would be taken to meet all of the standards. The action plan was evaluated by Ofsted on 21 January 2020 and subsequently accepted by the DfE. Wemms Education Centre offers education to pupils who have been unable to cope in mainstream education. Pupils typically have social, emotional and mental health needs. Almost all have an EHC plan. The school has expanded considerably since the previous standard inspection. The previous governing body disbanded in 2018. The proprietor is in the process of establishing an advisory board. This already has three active members, and more are set to join. As the school has expanded, the school has established and expanded a faculty structure and a large senior management team.

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.
