School Description

Pupils at this school achieve extremely well. Depending on their medical requirements, pupils may stay at the school for either short or long durations. All staff genuinely care about the pupils and are committed to their success. There is a high level of engagement and attendance among the pupils, despite their often complicated conditions. This is because pupils enjoy the lessons, appreciate the staff, and are helped to see the value in learning. Pupils’ behaviour is exemplary. They are polite, welcoming and cooperative. The positive and well-staffed environment ensures that any potential for bullying is minimised. This means pupils feel safe and are kept safe here. Pupils take part in a wide range of extra-curricular activities. This includes virtual trips using video robots and working with visiting chefs. A popular annual event is the sports day. This is planned to make it fully inclusive, with some pupils taking part in their hospital beds. Staff know the importance of this work because it helps to reduce the sense of isolation many pupils can feel. Parents value the school’s unique approach and empathetic staff. One parent expressed the sentiments of many others by saying, ‘At an extraordinarily difficult time, this school has had a really positive impact on my child’s life.’
