School Description

The pupils who attend the school regularly feel safe and know they have adults around that will look out for them. Over time they build trust and learn to respect those that teach and support them. Each day starts with tea and toast, the opportunity to share news and take a breather from life’s challenges before learning begins. Most pupils attend this school because they find it difficult to behave well. The respect that pupils learn to give trusted adults is not replicated between pupils. Although targeted bullying is rare, pupils are sometimes rude to each other. They try to goad each other and can use foul and homophobic language towards each other. Adults give pupils constant reminders about their behaviour and poor language, but it does not always result in improvements. In addition to their studies on site, pupils benefit from developing other skills and interests, for example fishing, which is very popular. They also take part in other recreational activities such as mountain biking and lawn bowls. Leaders have tried to raise expectations about the quality of education and have begun to prioritise reading. However, expectations about the behaviour of pupils towards each other are not high enough and are not being consistently met.
