School Description

3 Dimensions is an independent special school that is registered to provide education for boys and girls with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties and for pupils who have autistic spectrum disorder. Many pupils also have attachment disorders or have experienced trauma. All pupils have an EHC plan. The school opened in 2004 and is currently registered for 16 pupils between seven and 25 years of age. Currently, 11 pupils attend, one on a part-time basis. There are currently no pupils in the sixth form or adult learners. The school is owned by 3 Dimensions, a registered company. It is set in a rural location near the town of Chard, in Somerset. The company also owns two children’s homes in the Inspection report: 3 Dimensions, 19–21 June 2018 Page 8 of 11 area, which provide residential accommodation for some pupils. The school currently uses two alternative providers: Core Creative Education Community Interest Company and Somerset Equus Limited. The school is overseen by an education manager. She is supported by a teacher-incharge. The school employs a range of therapists to assess pupils’ therapeutic needs, design programmes which teaching staff implement, and monitor pupils’ progress. The school’s previous standard inspection was undertaken from 28 to 30 April 2015, when the school was judged to be good. Following a material change inspection in June 2016, the registration authority extended the age range of the school to accept pupils from the age of seven.
