Our Offerings

The school is part of the Caldecott Foundation and has both a Primary and a Secondary provision. There are further satellite units in the local vicinity and in the East Midlands. There is a boarding provision on the main Kent site which supports a number of young people (currently licensed to support up to ten students). The Foundation provides a Residential offer as well as Fostering and Education.

A Great Support Network

All the education provisions have very small class sizes – maximum of six students, with high adult to student support ratios; at least one member of staff to three students although the ratio is usually higher with one member of staff to two students. In specific instances we provide one to one support. Currently, across all the educational provisions we have fifty-two pupils on roll. We have a tiered fee structure which covers all educational expenses apart from some specialised services which we discuss with the commissioning Local Authority (LA) if they are deemed appropriate and relevant. The school gained Autism Accreditation from the National Autism Society in October 2020. We are now a Specialist Educational Provision for Autism.

All children accepted into the school either have an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) or are in the process of applying for one. If it is appropriate, individuals residing within the Residential settings will attend either a local mainstream provision or attend Caldecott School. At Caldecott we have positive relationships with many of the local provisions, both mainstream and special needs.
