School Description

Shaftesbury Extended Learning Centre opened in January 2013. It is an independent special school accommodated in a former pupil referral unit in Keresley, on the outskirts of Coventry. It specialises in providing alternative provision for students in key stage 4. The school’s previous inspection was on 14–16 May 2014 when overall effectiveness was judged to be inadequate. Following this, a monitoring inspection took place on 26 March 2015 when all independent school standards were judged to be met. The school is registered for up to 22 pupils. Currently there are 22 pupils on the school’s roll. Inspection report: Shaftesbury Extended Learning Centre, 5–7 June 2018 Page 10 of 13 The school is registered for pupils in Years 10 and 11, almost all of whom have emotional and social difficulties. The school also caters for pupils with needs such as dyslexia, moderate learning difficulties or attention deficit and hyperactive disorders. At the time of the inspection, no pupils had an education, health and care plan and there were no pupils with English as an additional language. Pupils on the roll of the school have often had severely disrupted education. Some have histories of poor attendance or of exclusion from school. A Head of Centre oversees the work of the school. She is supported by the CEO of Shaftesbury Young People, who is directly responsible to the charity. The school uses alternative providers to accommodate physical education and to extend the curriculum it offers. These activities usually take place in the afternoons. These are: Coventry Building Workshop, The AT7 Centre in Coventry, Brakes Mechanics Workshop, a local workshop, 90 One Driving in Coventry and Leamington Lamp. Pupils also go to City College, Coventry for plumbing, mechanics and construction.
