School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Bradstow is a residential special school for children and young people with severe learning, behaviour or communication difficulties; a high proportion of students have a diagnosis of autism.

Students are generally admitted from maintained special schools throughout London and the southeast. They attend Bradstow having often been permanently excluded from their previous special school, with some being refused admission to the latter on the grounds of the severity of their disabilities and associated challenging behaviour. Most families require additional support to manage their child's complex needs.

The proportion of students who are from ethnic minority heritages is above average, as is that of the students who speak English as an additional language and are at the early stages of learning English, most of whom are boys. Almost all students are boarders and all have a statement of special educational needs. There are four day students.

The proportion of students known to be eligible for the pupil premium (those eligible for free school meals, those in care and those with a parent or carer in the armed services) is above average. The local authority looks after 15 of the students, but none of the students in the school are from services families. All Year 7 students are eligible for the Year 7 catch-up premium.

Around two thirds of students across the school are involved with the local Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) as a result of their behavioural needs.

The provision works in partnership with many different bodies and organisations, including more than 20 local authorities.

Eight of students in Key Stages 4 and 5 currently receive some of their education off site, delivered by a range of alternative providers, including East Kent College, The John Graham Centre, Hilderstone Adult Education Centre and the Community Art Project in Margate.

The school only offers the Award Scheme Development and Accreditation Network (ASDAN) externally accredited courses and does not enter students for other examinations.

Since the last inspection the school has gained the prestigious European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM) Awards for `Customer Focus', `Leading with vision, inspiration and integrity' and `Succeeding through people'.

In June 2011 the school's residential provision was inspected by Ofsted, and was judged to be outstanding overall.
