School Description

Staff provide education and care to meet individual pupils’ needs well. They take time to get to know each pupil personally. They provide precisely planned support for pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). This includes pupils with social, emotional and mental health difficulties. Staff cater well for pupils who have spent long periods of time out of education and have experienced significant difficulties in their lives. Staff are skilled in the way in which they support and nurture pupils. Pupils are made to feel welcome in the school environment. They develop trusting relationships with staff. Staff help pupils to become interested in education again. There are high expectations for pupils. Staff expect pupils to behave well and they do. Bullying is very rare. Pupils say that they enjoy their time in school. They say they feel safe here. Staff deal swiftly with any incidents of poor behaviour. They help pupils to understand and manage their behaviour. Pupils enjoy visiting the school farm. They learn how to care for the rabbits, donkeys and goats. They learn to grow fruit, vegetables and flowers. These opportunities help to reduce pupils’ anxiety. They learn essential skills which serve to support the development of their mental and physical health.
