School Description

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. You are an inspirational leader who is passionate about the quality of care and education that the pupils at Briarwood receive. You have extremely high expectations of yourself and staff to ensure pupils experience the very best quality of education, support and guidance the school can provide. You are not complacent and are constantly striving to improve the school. For example, you have been instrumental in developing the buildings across all three sites to ensure the facilities the school offers to pupils are of the highest quality. Further plans are due to come to fruition in the coming year as a result of your impressive leadership and determination. You are ably supported by your senior leaders, who share your vision for the school to be the very best it can be. You have tackled all of the areas identified as needing improvement at the last inspection with rigour. For example, the behaviour of pupils is impressive and was exemplary during this inspection. Routines are well established and staff consistently apply the school’s behaviour policy. As a result, pupils have a clear understanding of what is expected of them and respond quickly to instructions.
