School Description

Brays is a school where pupils achieve amazing things. They succeed because skilful and enthusiastic staff provide exceptional care and well-planned lessons. Pupils overcome barriers to learning quickly because they get the right help. Communication and independence are priorities. Staff ensure that all pupils have the right skills so the world around them can hear their ‘voice’. Recent developments at Sheldon and the new autism provision at Tile Cross have made things even better. Both sites are warm and caring environments. Both focus on getting the very best outcomes for every pupil. Both are successful. Pupils are proud of their school and inspired by the lessons they experience. Pupils behave well in lessons, breaktimes and around school. This is because staff look beyond any incident to see the reasons for the behaviour. As a result, they provide the right sensory, learning or emotional support. This ensures that pupils thrive in a calm and relaxed atmosphere. Bullying is rare. Leaders investigate any incidents and act when needed. Parents told us that this is a great school. They say staff work ‘above and beyond’ to make a positive difference to the lives of their children. We agree.
