ACCREDITATION PANEL REPORT



SERVICE REVIEWED:
Amwell View School



REVIEW TEAM REPORT: Presented on: 12 December 2012



REVIEW TEAM REPORT: Presented by: Gill Zettle



PANEL DECISION: Accredited



PANEL REPORT:



The panel congratulate Amwell View School on achieving the standards required to be awarded accredited status. The panel endorse the four areas of development and the six areas of strength cited in the review report, however they wish to elevate the following strength to recognise it as Good Practice.



Specialist Standard 10 Community Participation.

The work the school has done in establishing the ‘Paralympics’ clubs and activities across the community is to be commended. This ensures that ex students and adults continue to benefit from the rich sports curriculum on offer which is a true preparation for adult life. The panel also wished me to convey their compliments to the school for the consistency of practice across the school that the review team reported and on the superb development of the physical activity curriculum.



Evidence to support the review team’s assessment of the standards being reviewed is obtained from practice observations and parent/carer questionnaires. Data from these provides evidence of sound autism specific practice with 75.78% observations being rated as met. With ‘met’ being the standard one would expect to see in a accredited service, this is evidence of sound autism specific practice. 16.4% of the observations were rated as met and exceeded and the staff should be congratulated on this.



The standard of care evident at Amwell View School is appreciated and acknowledged by parents with 36.36% stating that they were very happy with the service, 37.5% are happy and 22.72% are satisfied. This is a significant achievement and a credit to a very competent, dedicated and enthusiastic staff.



The panel congratulate Amwell View School on this achievement and look forward to watching the further development of the school over the coming years.
