A Parent's Guide to Choosing a Special School


School Description

Phoenix Academy is an independent special school. It provides for pupils with social, emotional and mental health needs, autistic spectrum disorders, and communication and interaction needs. All of the pupils have an EHC plan. Since the last standard inspection, there have been significant changes to the leadership of the school. A new headteacher and deputy headteacher took up their posts in November 2018. At the same time, the previous post holders left. The last standard inspection took place in November 2015. At this time, the school was judged to be inadequate. A progress monitoring inspection took place in November 2016. Inspection report: Phoenix Academy, 11–13 December 2018 Page 7 of 11 The school met all of the independent school standards during this inspection. The school aims to provide ‘a high quality, specialist nurturing environment for students’. The school has a governing body. The chair of the governing body is also the chief executive officer of Phoenix Learning and Care Ltd. Almost all of the pupils are currently in key stage 2. The school is using alternative provision at Reach and Otter Head forest school for one pupil.
