Our education service offers a creative and individualised approach to education.

All young people who come to Meadows School receive a comprehensive 6-week assessment (SARP: School Assessment and Reintegration Programme). The SARP was devised to ensure that all pupils receive a full assessment at the start of their education with us. The SARP offers an academic baseline assessment in numeracy, literacy and science, Cognitive AbilityTesting (CAT) and a Boxall assessment of social, emotional and behavioural needs.

By completing the SARP, pupils also fulfil an ASDAN qualification helping with a sense of achievement early on in their education experience.

The SARP then informs the Senior Leaders where the best place would be to educate the pupils moving forward. This may be to remain with us in the school/education hubs, to access one of our Quality Assured Alternative Provisions or to move to another school setting which may suit their needs more appropriately e.g. vocational college or a special school.

We have a thorough evaluation cycle 
to ensure the best education…

Meadows School has a strong education leadership team including a fully qualified Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) who oversees the educational needs of all our pupils and represents them at PEP, LACs and supports the EHCP application process.

An example of our Alternative Provision is the Agricultural Rural Centre (ARC).

The ARC has a creative and innovative approach to learning enabling pupils to be taught through animal care, working on the land and horticultural activities. At the ARC pupils can complete GCSE qualifications, ASDAN short courses and a range of AQA awards.

Baseline assessments are used to design a creative, personalized curriculum with appropriate targets set to ensure progress is made thereby closing the gap between our LAC children and those nationally.
