School Description

Pupils have high aspirations. This is because leaders and staff regularly encourage pupils to do their very best. More recently, the quality of education pupils receive is helping them to learn more and move closer to realising their potential. When pupils start the school at different times of the year, they are swiftly welcomed into the school family. Staff know the pupils very well. This enables them to quickly identify any signs that suggest a pupil needs additional guidance or reassurance. This helps to keep pupils on track and focused on their work for large parts of the day. Pupils trust staff. They believe every adult wants the very best for them. Relationships between pupils and staff are usually positive. There are occasions when pupils ‘fly off the handle’, but instances such as this are reducing. Staff are unanimous in their view that behaviour in the school is improving. Pupils say they feel safe most of the time. The pupils spoken to told inspectors some bullying does happen. However, pupils are confident enough to report it, and they say staff take bullying and poor behaviour very seriously. There are many opportunities for pupils to develop personally and culturally during therapy sessions and trips to attractions such as the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds.
