School Description

Leaders’ unwavering high expectations and drive to improve the life chances of every pupil are the foundation of what all staff do. Positive relationships and meaningful interaction are a joy to observe here. Pupils are happy and safe, and most pupils thrive after just a short time at the school. All pupils have had traumatic previous experiences in education. They have been removed from schools and had prolonged periods out of education. All pupils now regularly engage in learning. Leaders focus intensively on pupils’ personal development. They have carefully thought about what activities pupils can do. The school’s ‘equals’ curriculum ensures that pupils have many opportunities to bring their learning to life. For example, horse riding, outside learning and structured lunch and breaktimes help pupils to increase their independence. Leaders know their pupils exceptionally well. They have ensured that all staff know every pupil and their specific needs, including how to communicate with them. As a result, everyone is immediately aware of any changes in pupils’ behaviour. Staff act quickly and calmly to de-escalate any situations. Pupils’ behaviour has markedly improved. For the most part of the day, the school is a calm and orderly environment.
