School Description

Pupils describe Hope Tree as a ‘place where we can start to learn again’. Many have had negative experiences of education previously. Staff are caring and take time to understand pupils’ complex social and emotional needs. This helps pupils to feel safe and settled. Parents agree. One parent commented, ‘Hope Tree is quite simply amazing in every aspect possible.’ Pupils build trusting relationships with adults. They know leaders have high expectations of what they can achieve. The school’s curriculum for developing pupils’ personal skills is effective. However, this is not the same for pupils’ academic learning. Leaders are still developing their subject plans. This means that pupils are not achieving consistently well across the curriculum. Pupils behave well. They are courteous and polite to one another. Pupils appreciate the quiet and calm classroom where they work. There is rarely any disruption and bullying is not a problem. Pupils know there is always someone to talk to at school. They know that adults will help them regardless of their concerns. Pupils also like to talk to the school dog, Skye. This helps them to feel calm if they become anxious or upset.
