School Description

Most pupils like school. For some, attending this school has been the first time they can say this. Pupils whose needs make school a challenging place to be are afforded patience, assistance and space to learn. Adults care deeply about pupils who, in turn, feel confident that there is always someone to go to for help. This school understands and supports pupils’ personal, social, emotional and mental health needs well. It also has high aspirations for pupils academically. The school puts pupils on carefully constructed pathways towards finding and fulfilling future goals and ambitions. This is a vibrant and active school. Pupils benefit from a rich range of opportunities from horse-riding to robotics and from farming to filmmaking. Targeted links with a wide range of off-site partners introduce pupils to a wealth of experiences, as well as chances to gain accreditations that they could not otherwise get in school. Pupils feel safe and free from bullying. Most behave well. They respond positively to the school’s many helpful strategies aimed at minimising times when pupils struggle to regulate their own conduct and helping them get back on track when this occurs.
