But teachers also encourage them to be as independent as possible. Pupils are well supported by friendly staff who they trust. Staff understand each pupil’s unique needs. Classrooms are hives of activity where pupils grow in confidence and succeed in overcoming challenges. Older pupils are well prepared for adulthood. Pupils make good friends at school. They are kind to one another. There is a real sense of community. Pupils are safe and well looked after. They know that there are staff in school who they can talk to if they are worried about something. Pupils usually behave very well. There are few reported incidents of bullying. When it does happen, staff deal with it straight away. Pupils are superb ambassadors for their school. They speak with pride about what the school offers them and what they accomplish. Pupils learn that they have control over their destiny. Staff encourage pupils to speak up, and they do. Leaders listen, then shape pupils’ school experience based on what they say.
