St. Ann's School

School Description

Prior to starting at Abigail’s Place, many pupils have experienced a disrupted education. At this school, staff meet pupils’ individual needs well and their attitudes to learning improve. Pupils learn things that help them to prepare for success in future qualifications and careers. Pupils’ behaviour can be challenging. Staff manage this effectively. They teach pupils about managing their feelings in constructive ways. Staff provide a safe environment in which pupils can talk about their experiences and emotions. The ‘sunshine group’ encourages pupils to reflect on the positive aspects of their lives. This, alongside professional therapy sessions, ensures that pupils get the support they need. Pupils enjoy school. The highly positive environment and ethos of the school enables them to be successful and feel safe. If bullying occurs, it is dealt with swiftly and fairly by staff. Pupils have access to a rich, ambitious curriculum and experience a broad range of activities. A particular feature of the school is its music curriculum, which supports all pupils to competently play the recorder and African drums. Pupils told inspectors that they value what the school does for them.
