School Description

Weston Point College is an independent special school registered to provide education for pupils and students aged 11 to 18 years, who have behavioural, emotional and social difficulties. At the time of the inspection there were no pupils over the age of 16 attending the school. The school is owned by Bridge 4 Learning, which aims to: ‘Provide high-quality education placements for students with significant social, emotional and behavioural difficulties whose needs cannot be met within traditional local authority provision. All students can expect to be treated with the utmost respect and this is extended to their families and carers.’ Inspection report: Weston Point College, 9–11 July 2019 Page 10 of 13 In January 2018 a material change inspection was commissioned by the DfE to determine the suitability of the school’s proposed new premises and consider the school’s request to increase its maximum number of pupils on roll from 30 to 36. The material change was granted. The school is currently located at three sites in Runcorn. The main site is Weston Point College, which caters for boys with special educational needs and emotional and behavioural problems. The second site, known as the LEAP 1 centre, currently caters for a small number of vulnerable girls. The new centre, LEAP 2, currently caters for vulnerable boys with emotional and mental health difficulties and specific learning difficulties such as autism. There are currently 17 pupils on roll, all of whom are of White British heritage. All students have an education, health and care plan. Pupils are placed at the school by different local authorities in the North West region, often having missed long periods of education. Each is provided with a personalised curriculum. Since the previous inspection, there have been several staff appointments, including two teachers and ‘instructors’, who usually teach and assist class teachers. At the time of the inspection a number of staff, including teachers and a senior leader, were not in school. The school works with a number of external providers for work experience and placement purposes. During the inspection pupils were on work placements at Tracs UK Ltd, bicycle maintenance based in Delamere Forest, Cornerstones Vocational Training Ltd, based in Warrington, and STAR–SLA motorcycle maintenance and repair, based in Liverpool.
