Assurance Visit – Due to COVID-19 (coronavirus), Ofsted suspended all routine inspections in March 2020. As part of a phased return to routine inspection, they are undertaking assurance visits to children’s social care services that are inspected under the social care common inspection framework (SCCIF). This report relates to the visit on the 22nd and 23rd October 2020.

Parent View

Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about your child’s school, from the quality of teaching to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour.   The survey can be completed at any time; you don’t have to wait until the school is being inspected.  This is relevant for Nursery and School only.

Learner View

Where Learners Can Give Their Views Learner View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about your further education and skills provider. Learner View asks for your opinion on a range of 10 aspects: from whether the lessons/training sessions are well taught to if you would recommend the provider to a friend.  Ofsted use the information you provide when making decisions about which providers to inspect, and when. Follow the link to Learner View to give your view on St Martin’s provision.

Care Quality Commission (CQC)

The dedicated team of care, therapy and education staff at St Rose’s and St Martin’s provide exceptional quality of care for its children and students.
The residential care at St. Martin’s, our post-19 centre, is inspected by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) which is an independent body that monitors, inspects and regulates services to make sure they meet fundamental standards of quality and safety. They publish their findings, including performance ratings, to help people choose care.
The CQC make sure health and social care services provide people with safe, effective, compassionate, high-quality care and they encourage care services to improve.

Our most recent CQC inspection report is available here.

Clifton Diocese RE Inspection Report

Our most recent RE inspection report is available here.



St Rose’s aims to provide a broad and balanced curriculum that offers stimulating opportunities appropriate to the needs of our students.




A team of experienced therapists are employed directly by the school to work alongside education and care staff. Collaborative therapy and sharing that knowledge is integral to the work of our school.



When a child or young person is happy, they have the best chance of progressing and achieving their goals. Ensuring that your child’s emotional needs are met is as important as their physical requirements.
