A special school has been given a good grade by Ofsted inspectors.

Ofsted representatives visited The Yellow House School in Alderford Street, Sible Hedingham, in December and graded it good across the board.

The independent specialist school currently has 10 children on its roll but can care for up to 15, aged between 13 and 17 years.

The school, which opened in 2002, offers therapy as well as education to students with complex communication, behavioural, emotional and social needs.

It is one of two branches of the school, with the other being in Clare, Suffolk, where the annual fees for day students are £50,931.

All the pupils attending the school have a special educational needs statement and are referred there by Essex County Council.

Lead inspector Jackie Cousins said: “Behaviour is good, and students become polite and thoughtful young people. “They receive outstanding levels of care and guidance from staff.

“The students feel safe at school and make good progress in their personal, social and emotional development.

“Parents really appreciate everything the school staff do for their child.”

To become outstanding the school needs to offer some students more qualifications which employers would find useful and improve feedback.
