School Description

Pupils enjoy coming to school and greet staff with smiles as they arrive each morning. They know that staff care for them and support them. Pupils place great trust in the adults who work with them. Staff make sure that all pupils can communicate in ways which the staff understand. Pupils say that school is safe and they know who to tell if they have any worries. Pupils are keen to learn. They receive challenge and support from staff as they prepare for their next steps, focusing on ‘Life after Ash Lea’. Younger pupils learn to play and improve their physical skills on the wide range of outdoor equipment. Older pupils understand the importance of their work experience and college ‘taster’ courses. As one pupil said, ‘It is helping us think about what we will do when we leave school.’ Pupils behave well at all times of the day. Pupils receive support to help them learn how to manage their own feelings and behave. If there are any incidents of bullying, staff deal with them well. Pupils are proud of their efforts. They celebrate their achievements with staff and with each other, throughout the day and in assemblies.
