School Description

Caban Aur is a small independent school owned by Afon Goch Children’s Homes Limited. It is set in its own grounds, in a rural setting on the Isle of Anglesey, surrounded by a nature reserve. The school provides education for boys and girls with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties who are resident at one of the company’s two children’s homes. At the time of the inspection, three pupils aged 15 to 16 were attending the school. All of the children are looked after by a local authority. Two of the pupils have a statement of special educational needs. The school accommodation consists of a small classroom within Caban Aur children’s home. Most lessons involve one-to-one teaching within the classroom. The school also makes use of other areas of the home, such as the kitchen and lounge, for teaching aspects of the curriculum. A headteacher manages the school, supported by one full-time and four part-time teachers. The headteacher has been in post since the school opened, in 2012. Due to the fact that the school is based within a children’s home, care staff are on site during the day. As part of their role, they support pupils when they display challenging behaviour and do not engage in education. The company’s second children’s home, Afon Goch, is situated in Gwynedd. Where appropriate, pupils from Afon Goch attend the school at Caban Aur. In addition, teachers from Caban Aur provide education at Afon Goch for a very few pupils who are unable to access Caban Aur. The school year consists of eight five-week terms, with one or two gap weeks between each term. This is the first full inspection of the school. As there are fewer than five pupils at the school, inspectors did not give a judgement for Key Question 1, standards or wellbeing. This is because the number of pupils was too few to report on without identifying individual pupils.
