School Description

IncludEd provides highly effective support for its pupils. The care and guidance that they receive helps them to overcome their many barriers to learning, especially those relating to pupils’ mental health and self-esteem. Pupils thrive in the nurturing environment that leaders have created. Leaders and staff are aspirational for all pupils to be as successful as they can be. Staff embody the school motto, ‘caring for a better tomorrow’. Pupils strive to live up to these high expectations. Pupils told us that they enjoy coming to school. They said that they feel safe and well cared for because staff take time to listen to them. One pupil’s view that, ‘Staff understand me,’ reflects the views of many pupils. Pupils behave well most of the time. They said that staff help them to sort out any arguments, and, should bullying occur, it would be dealt with quickly by staff. Pupils appreciate the many opportunities they have to develop new skills. Pupils cook lunch for everyone on a Thursday. The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme enhances the curriculum further. Activities promote pupils’ resilience, determination and independence. Leaders encourage pupils to contribute to their local community, for example by litter picking in the local park.
