​​Welcome to our website. Prospect School is a specialist provision providing day education for students aged 11-16 years old with social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs. A number of our students also have a range of additional needs which include attachment disorder, attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and autistic spectrum conditions (ASC). All students at Prospect School have an EHCP.
We support the long-term personal and academic achievements of our students which builds self-esteem and gives them the confidence to face new challenges. The needs of the students are met in a small, nurturing environment with a highly differentiated curriculum and exceptional student-staff relationships.
At Prospect School, students and their families our welcomed into our community as individuals. Every aspect of their needs is considered by a large team of skilled and experienced professionals. Every student is cared for and cherished until, and often beyond, their very last day on our roll, wherever they are. Students and their families frequently return to the school to share news of their achievements and experiences in later life.

Ofsted Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think of your child’s school, including: 

 - how happy your child is at the school

 - how the school manages bullying or challenging behaviour  

If your child has special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), we will ask how well the school supports them. 

The questionnaire can be completed at any time - you don’t have to wait until the school is being inspected. 

We will use your responses to help us plan inspections. The information you provide can:  

- inform discussions inspectors have with school leaders during an inspection  

 - help Ofsted decide when to inspect a school   

In addition to this, we also publish the overall summary of the responses to Ofsted Parent View. This information is anonymised.
