Information about this school

New Rush Hall School provides for pupils who have behavioural, social and emotional difficulties (BESD). The majority come from the London Borough of Redbridge though a large number travel to school from neighbouring authorities. The school is part of a loose federation with others in the New Rush Hall Group.

In recent years, a higher proportion of pupils who are admitted to the school have learning difficulties in addition to their other needs. At the time of the inspection there were just three girls on roll at the school, all of whom are in the primary department. Approximately half of all pupils come from backgrounds which are other than White British.

All pupils have statements of special educational needs. Almost half of all pupils are believed to be entitled to the pupil premium, which is much higher than the national average. The school has gained a number of awards including a Research Charter Mark and the Inclusion Quality Mark.

The school is a National Support School and the headteacher a National Leader in Education. The school does not use alternative provision. The school runs a breakfast club.
