Treloar’s School are delighted with second ‘Outstanding’ rating since January
Treloar School, based in Alton, has been ranked as the best nationally as a provider of education and care to young people with disabilities.
A recent Ofsted inspection has rated the charity as “Outstanding” in all areas.
The three-day assessment by inspectors observed the provision provided by staff and considered the views of students, staff and parents.
The report states they were impressed that: “The children and families receive an exceptional, inspirational service from a dedicated, multi-disciplinary staff group which is supported by a motivated and aspirational management team.
“The children make excellent social, emotional and educational progress as a result of the support they receive.”
One of the parents, who wished to remain anonymous, says the school do a brilliant job. They said: “This is an incredible school. The care my son receives is exceptional and has proved life-changing.”
The Treloar Trust was founded by Sir William Purdie Treloar while he was Lord Mayor of the City of London (1906).
Now, more than 100 years later, it supports Treloar School (for pupils 2-16) and Treloar College (further education for students 16+).
Both School and College are specialists in providing education, care, therapy, medical support, independence training and opportunities for young people with physical disabilities from across the UK.
Martin Ingram, who is the principal at the school, says he is delighted to receive a second Outstanding result since January.
He said: “Once again, I am delighted that the inspectors have praised our students for their excellent progress and I am really proud of our staff whose professionalism, hard work and kindness help secure outstanding outcomes for all of the young people here”.
More than 40 disabilities are represented at Treloar’s. The most common are cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy. Most students use wheelchairs with almost half having no speech.
There are currently around 160 students benefiting from the service every year.
