School Description

Pupils have given an enthusiastic thumbs up to this much-loved school. They are very happy to attend. Staff are caring and supportive. Parents and carers appreciate the expert help staff give them and their children. One parent reflected the views of others when they stated, ‘Staff are empathetic, understanding, caring, very supportive and work holistically to ensure my child has a great learning experience every single day.’ Pupils say they feel safe. Leaders have high ambitions for all pupils. They support all pupils to understand each other’s feelings and to engage with other pupils and adults in a positive way. Leaders want pupils to play an active part in their community. The ‘Beyond Bennerley’ curriculum prepares pupils well for their next stage of learning and for adult life. Staff support pupils to communicate their needs in a variety of ways. They know the causes of distress for each pupil so they can intervene early to help pupils remain calm. Pupils are polite and respectful around the school. They offer a warm welcome to visitors. They look after each other and play well together. Pupils are certain that if bullying were to happen, staff would deal with it quickly and effectively.
