A Parent's Guide to Choosing a Special School


School Description

Aurora Hedgeway is a small independent special school which provides full-time education for children between the ages of eight and 19. It was previously known as the NAS Anderson School. The Aurora Group took up ownership of the school in November 2016. There are currently 20 pupils on roll. All pupils have an education, health and care plan or a statement of special educational needs in relation to autistic spectrum disorders. The previous principal left the school at the end of October 2017. At the time of the inspection, the school was being led by an interim head of education. A process to recruit substantive leadership was in place. Inspection report: Aurora Hedgeway School, 14–16 November 2017 Page 9 of 12 The school’s previous standard inspection took place in November 2013. This judged the school to be adequate overall. At the request of the Department for Education, the school received an emergency inspection in June 2015. This found that a number of independent school standards relating to Parts 1, 3, 6 and 8 were not met. A subsequent progress monitoring inspection, undertaken by Ofsted in July 2016, judged that the school was, at that time, meeting all of the independent school standards. The school does not currently use any alternative provision. At the time of the inspection, there were no students in the sixth form.
