School Description

Staff at this school go to exceptional lengths to support pupils in feeling safe and becoming more confident. The curriculum goes beyond meeting the academic needs of the pupils. Pupils speak enthusiastically about the wide range of activities they take part in, such as visiting police dog handlers, dancing, scuba-diving and hill walking. All pupils who responded to the Ofsted questionnaire responded positively. Each pupil has a timetable of physical activities and lessons that are planned to meet their individual needs. This bespoke curriculum meets pupils’ personal development needs exceptionally well. Pupils’ attendance rates are exceptionally high. This represents a dramatic improvement on their previous school attendance. Pupils quickly learn to trust staff. Their growing ability to become more confident, successful members of British society is obvious. Staff make links to pupils’ personal circumstances to help them deal with any anxieties and past experiences they may have had. Staff manage behaviour well. With guidance, pupils quickly learn strategies to manage their own behaviour. Pupils say that they feel safe and they know they can talk to adults they trust if they need to. They wear their uniform with pride.
