‘Cotswold Chine School provides an outstanding quality of Education that fully meets its aims, maintaining its high standards from the previous inspection. Students make outstanding progress because the quality of the curriculum, teaching and assessment is outstanding’ (Ofsted 2010).
The School offers full access to the National Curriculum and students leave school with a wide range of externally accredited qualifications including Unit Awards, Entry Level Certificates, Duke of Edinburgh, ASDAN, COPE, Work Related Learning and GCSEs, with some students gaining at Grade C and above. Additionally, students have access to an extensive craft and vocational curriculum which enables them to develop a wide range of practical and artistic skills. The School’s recent Ofsted report (2010) highlighted the ‘many curriculum pathways open to KS 4 and post 16 students’ and the ‘lively pace and frequent changes of activity so that students attend well and remain absorbed’ as being particularly outstanding features of the School’s educational provision. Education is delivered through a multi-disciplinary approach, with all staff working together to ensure each student achieves their potential.
Educational accommodation includes seven well-resourced classrooms with excellent ICT facilities, a design/technology/art room, food technology room, music room (with recording facilities), library and school hall. The School is currently developing specialist science facilities. There are extensive grounds, access to the nearby common as well as to an area of woodland, which provides an excellent resource for outdoor education in a range of subject areas. Teaching staff are well qualified and able to provide additional communication aids/ strategies such as visual aids and a structured approach to teaching, where appropriate.
Within the residential accommodation ‘Young people benefit from enthusiastic staff who feel supported in their professional development through excellent training opportunities.
Young people enjoy the activities available and the individual support to meet their social and academic targets and to develop their life skills’
Our comprehensive facilities also include therapy and psychology support from a range of in-house professionals, speech and language assessment, high staff to student ratio and health promotion/support via a dedicated school nurse.
Cotswold Chine was founded in 1954 and is administrated by Novalis Trust, a charitable organisation based on the principles of care and education of Rudolf Steiner.
