School Description

Pupils flourish at this inspirational school. Skilled staff expertly care for pupils’ complex needs. Pupils feel safe and are kept safe. They told us they are very happy. Relationships between pupils and staff are extremely positive. Staff have very high expectations of pupils’ behaviour and achievement. Consequently, pupils behave very well and try their absolute best. Pupils enjoy receiving ‘Digby Dollars’ as rewards for behaving well and working hard. Bullying is extremely rare. Pupils are confident that staff would stop any bullying incidents quickly. There is an excellent range of resources. Pupils’ physical needs are met through a hydrotherapy pool, outdoor pitch, and climbing equipment. Pupils experience an extensive range of activities both inside and outside the classroom. They visit many relevant places of interest. They develop their life skills in local shops and cafes. Pupils enjoy looking after Janet, the tortoise, and Nibble, the school rabbit. The vast majority of parents and carers are positive in their views of the school. One comment, typical of many, was: ‘My child has progressed massively while in school, not just academically but in terms of their social skills and self-care.’
