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.

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. Although you only took on the role of headteacher in September 2016, your previous role as deputy headteacher has prepared you well. You clearly know your school well and have a clear understanding of the needs of the pupils who attend it. Staff who completed the Ofsted online questionnaire overwhelmingly supported your appointment. Those spoken to during the inspection spoke warmly and enthusiastically about your leadership style and future plans. In the first few months of your headship, you have already faced several challenges. You and the governing body were clearly disappointed that the school has not yet been successful in its endeavours to appoint a deputy headteacher. However, your decision to offer leadership roles to current staff members has ensured that you have a supportive leadership team. The work of these newly appointed leaders is already beginning to bring about further improvement, particularly to the quality of pupils’ writing across the school. However, you also realise that there is further work to be done to ensure that pupils’ progress in writing matches that made in reading and mathematics. Your vision for the future is clearly reflected in your future planning. You are ambitious for the school and have set a clear pathway for improvement. The governing body supports your vision. The experienced chair of the governing body has a shrewd and astute understanding of the needs of the school and works alongside you in offering effective support and challenge to your leadership.
2015 GCSE RESULTSImportant information for parents
Due to number of reforms to GSCE reporting introduced by the government in 2014, such as the exclusion of iGCSE examination results, the official school performance data may not accurately report a school’s full results. For more information, please see About and refer to the section, ‘Why does a school show 0% on its GSCE data dial? In many affected cases, the Average Point Score will also display LOW SCORE as points for iGCSEs and resits are not included.
Schools can upload their full GCSE results by registering for a School Noticeboard. All school results data will be verified.
