We’re thrilled to be able to share the news that Dawn House School has been awarded ‘Outstanding’ in their Ofsted Care inspection, less than a year since their ‘Outstanding’ rating for the school overall.

-“Students independence and pathway to employment is maximised. Staff are able to tailor support depending upon the individual’s needs and ability.”

-“Staff work in highly effective partnerships with parents and other professionals from health, social care and education. Students receive seamlessly integrated care and consistent support of exceptional quality.”

Angela Child, I CAN Dawn House School Principal, said, “I am absolutely thrilled that yet again, the commitment of the staff and pupils to create a positive, cooperative and successful school has been recognised by an ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted inspection, this time for our Care Provision, less than a year since our ‘Outstanding’ report for the school. We are especially proud that the report recognises the fact that our staff are unyielding in their commitment to providing outstanding outcomes and promoting safety at a high level for students and staff.  I would like to thank every pupil, their families and our staff members who all work together to ensure the best outcomes for our pupils.”

Virginia Beardshaw CBE, I CAN Chief Executive, added, “It is a joy to congratulate the staff and pupils for their ‘Outstanding’ Care Provision report. Care staff are fully integrated into school life, and their input and support for pupils has been rightly recognised as of an outstanding quality.
