Boys are referred to the school by Local Authorities via the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Information & Advisory Service (SENDIAS) of County Hall at Northallerton. All boys have an Education, Health & Care Plan (EHCP) that specifies their emotional, behavioural, social and academic difficulties.
Places are offered after a planning meeting with the carers and child when all aspects of a placement have been discussed and deemed to be appropriate. Consultation with the parents takes place before the school is named which allows for: (a) parental preference; (b) suitability of provision (age/ability/degree of need); (c) compatibility of need with provision currently afforded other pupils, to be considered by the LA and Governing Body. The LA will then name Brompton Hall as being the appropriate placement. If there are any issues arising from the decision then they are discussed with SENDIAS at County Hall.
We wish to enter into an active partnership with parents to overcome educational and behavioural difficulties. It is, therefore, important that close contact and a good relationship is maintained between parents and school whilst the child is in residential education. It is equally important that close contact is maintained between parent and child. To help with this, each boy has a named key worker who will help with such liaison. Regular telephone calls can maintain good home contact.
"Pupils make at least good progress personally, socially and academically. They make huge strides in their learning, social skills and self-esteem compared to previous placements." Ofsted February 2017
If parents would like to arrange an informal visit to view the school and discuss their child’s issues prior to an interview, then contact should be made with the Headteacher.
