Special schools provide a unique and distinctive educational environment to meet the needs of the pupils in their community. Undertaking standard tests may not be appropriate and we do not show performance data for special schools.

School Description

The emotional and social needs of pupils at this school are well met. Pupils feel safe and are happy. Most parents who responded to the Ofsted questionnaire said that they consider their child to be safe and happy. Relationships between adults and pupils are respectful, relaxed and happy. Humour and kindness can be seen in relationships around the school. In some areas of the school the behaviour of some pupils is more challenging. Generally, staff implement techniques well to de-escalate situations that occur. Occasionally, pupils do say that disruptive behaviour prevents them from learning. Pupils told us how adults help them to deal with their anxieties. Adults give pupils resources such as calm boxes and weighted blankets to help them manage their own behaviours. The majority of adults have high expectations of what is acceptable behaviour. Leaders monitor behaviour and attendance carefully. They use this information well to identify patterns. Leaders take any concerns over behaviour very seriously. They work with outside agencies for advice and support where appropriate. Pupils do not get the opportunity to achieve as well as they might in their academic studies. The planning and delivery of some aspects of the curriculum are not good enough.

Hall Cliffe School Catchment Area Map

This school is independently managed and its admission criteria may be selective. There is no set catchment area as pupils are admitted from a wide variety of postcodes and, in the case of boarding schools, from outside the UK.
