School Description

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. Since your appointment in April 2017, you have quickly secured the trust and backing of staff. They feel supported and appreciate the opportunities you and knowledgeable governors provide for their professional development. As a result, there is high staff morale. Pupils, parents and carers spoken to by the inspectors speak highly of the school. For example, parents’ comments include: ‘staff have boosted confidence’, ‘there is a really person-centred approach’ and ‘they have really caught up in their work and are now taking GCSE English’. Pupils’ comments included: ‘this is the best school I’ve ever been at’ and ‘staff are aware of all pupils’ needs’. Governors have overseen a number of changes in staffing and leadership, including your own appointment. However, they have not been distracted from their strong focus upon teaching and learning. The quality of teaching, learning and assessment is never less than good, an improvement since the last inspection. Consequently, pupils make good progress towards their agreed targets in learning, behaviour, attendance and emotional well-being. Most pupils make successful returns to their mainstream schools or transfer to appropriate special school or specialist provision. Pupils who sit examinations at the school achieve a range of accreditations from Entry Level 1 functional skills awards up to higher grade GCSEs, for example, in English and mathematics.
