School Description

Adults and pupils are caring and friendly in this school. Classes are small, which means that staff get to know pupils very well. Staff skilfully help pupils to build their confidence. There are positive relationships between staff and pupils. Such features mean that pupils have a much more settled school experience than in schools they have attended in the past. Teachers expect pupils to try hard to behave well and be successful in their learning. Pupils are generally happy to come to school. They make big steps forward in their communication skills and in understanding how to interact with others. Despite this, the school does not make sure that pupils make the strongest possible progress in learning and remembering subject knowledge. Staff help pupils to improve their behaviour. Pupils usually behave well. Sometimes, staff need to give immediate help when pupils suddenly become extremely upset or anxious. When this happens, staff provide sensitive and helpful support to make sure that pupils calm down, regain control and are safe. Pupils told us that there is no bullying in the school. The COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic made it harder for staff to offer pupils the normal wide range of enjoyable learning experiences out of school. However, staff are now starting to provide these again.
