Information about the school

ISP School is an independent specialist provision serving children and young people (CYP) in Kent and Medway who live with their families, foster carers or in residential children’s homes.

We support children and young people with social, emotional, and mental health difficulties (SEMH), communication and interaction, cognition, and learning needs, and our experienced education teams work hard to deliver highly innovative and personalised curriculums that are tailored to individual pupil's requirements.

We ensure that we offer safe and nurturing environments, where all children are valued as individuals so that they can achieve the very best for themselves and their future. Our empathetic staff teams work closely with pupils to build trusting relationships, review their needs regularly, and differentiate the curriculum accordingly, so that we can offer individualised support for their special educational needs.

All our pupils benefit from small, friendly classes of a maximum of 5-7 pupils per class, allowing us to really get to know our children, achieve positive outcomes and succeed in providing pathways that enable a smooth transition to higher education, training and apprenticeships.

Making a difference to children and helping them to grow is what's most important to us and so we provide an innovative curriculum that enables each of our learners to develop their personal, emotional, social, and academic skills and knowledge, which will shape their whole life.
