As an Independent School we provide the opportunity for all our students to have access to their education; we provide the necessary clothing, equipment and resources required to enable learning to take place either at school, college or with one of our partner training providers. On this basis our students are less likely to require Pupil Premium to remove barriers to their accessing education. Therefore we work closely with our Local Authorities and students to ensure that monies are spent on items that support future academic progression and help enable the transition to independent learning and personal development.
We are proud of our parents’ group at West Heath. This group is not a traditional PTA in the sense of fund raising and running events at the school. The parent group supports parents and students in finding provision and services to enable better future outcomes, as well as being there for one another when things do not seem to be going to plan. Anyone is welcome to join the meeting, enjoy the company of parents whom understand the challenges and joys of having a child with a diagnosis of need, and of course to drink tea and eat biscuits.

Complaints, Concerns and Compliments:
We work closely with parents and professionals to continuously improve our provision, whether this be recommendations or through our complaints process; we are always pleased to hear from you. Last year (2015/2016) we received 3 complaints, one from a student, one from a parent and one from a London Borough. We also acted upon 11 ‘concerns’, where no formal complaint has been made, yet where we have felt it appropriate to record the information and follow up accordingly. We also received 17 compliments from students, parents, Local Authorities and other professionals.
