TCES National Online School offers a full curriculum delivered through therapeutic education and support to children and young people aged 5 to 25, who are unable to access education within an onsite school setting.
This can be for a variety of reasons and can be linked to special educational needs and/or disabilities, which are diagnosed or undiagnosed, including school anxiety and phobias often linked to emotionally based school avoidance (EBSA), or Autism, which is often co-morbid with social, emotional, and mental health needs. Students may also have had very difficult experiences within education settings of being isolated, bullied and may have self-excluded or being the recipient of an exclusion from a school unable to meet needs students may also be at risk in the local community, due to gang related issues, county lines or criminal or sexual exploitation.
58% of National Online School have ASC as their primary diagnosis
82% have SEMH either as a primary or secondary need
Students who attend the TCES National Online School may have Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) or be at the start of the EHCP process or indeed without an EHCP. We welcome referrals from Local Authorities, Schools or from alternative funding streams such as personal budgets, EOTAS or private funding.
Our TCES National Online School is the online delivery from a group of DFE registered and Ofsted regulated group of schools and specialist services. It has its roots in a Social Enterprise called TCES (The Complete Education Solution) an award-winning organisation, and whose mission is to create wide-scale social impact, through pioneering inclusive practices. TCES, which is entering its 25th year in operation, has provided independent special schools and specialist services since 1999.
"Thank you for all of the support that you have provided A, his family and school, his transition to school has been a great success, Camden LA very much appreciates all of the hard work and support your team has provided to him."
TCES’ schools and services have an enviable record of ‘Good’, ‘Good with Outstanding Standards’ or Outstanding (30%) Ofsted reports over the last 15 years, in both its schools. In the time since its inception in 1999, TCES has never permanent excluded a single student and has not had a fixed term exclusion since September 2018.
The TCES National Online School will be emulating its sister company in its inclusion policy and will never exclude any student from its services.
Our Online School benefits from a substantial base of TCES expertise in systems, processes and people, who have delivered the most pioneering of inclusive and innovative practices, for the past quarter of a century.
Most of our students are referred and funded by their Local Authority, or by schools, for whom being on-roll does not include receiving or taking up of any education, and we also invite enquiries from parents directly.
