School Description

A sense of care for every child permeates every aspect of Farney Close School. Pupils often arrive having struggled in school previously. When they first arrive, staff work to get to know each individual and what has made school challenging for them in the past. Pupils say that because they are listened to and cared for, this is a good to school for them. Pupils are proud of their school and keen to talk about how school staff help them with learning and provide them with a wide range of opportunities. Some of these are extra-curricular trips and visits, but many are threaded through the curriculum. For example, in food technology, each pupil learns to make a Christmas cake, which they take home to their families. Leaders recognise that pupils have the capacity to achieve even more in their learning. They are currently in the process of re-developing the curriculum to achieve this. Classrooms are mostly settled and focused. When pupils do struggle to manage, all staff know exactly what to do to support them and help them get ready to learn again. Pupils recognise that in the past bullying has happened, but now, leaders act quickly to nip any unkindness in the bud. Parents say that the support their children receive is life changing, not just for their child, but also for their families.
