School Description

Horton House School has two sites. Younger pupils attend the site at Wawne. Older pupils attend the Beverley site. Primary pupils like learning new things and most attend school regularly. Pupils who spoke to the inspectors also said they felt safe. Primary teachers understand pupils’ needs and help them to succeed. The curriculum is stronger in the primary years of the school. For example, mathematics books show that pupils use the skills they have learned to tackle new learning. Older pupils are not as happy and settled at school. Staff who teach older pupils are not always able to say what they want pupils to learn. Many pupils choose not to behave well, and this regularly disrupts the learning for other pupils. Some pupils run around in corridors rather than focusing on their work in classrooms. Secondary school staff are not always effective at calming pupils or helping them to regulate their own behaviour. Secondary pupils often take longer than primary pupils to return to the classroom after breaktime or lunchtime. A small number of pupils spend more time out of the classroom than they do inside it. Bullying is not always dealt with as well as it could be. A small number of pupils told inspectors that some pupils can be bullies. While staff often sort it out it, sometimes bullying continues.
