School Description

Leaders have maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. Pupils at Kennel Lane School are safe, happy and progressing well, both in their learning and in their personal development. A golden thread that runs through the school’s work is a shared determination to ensure that pupils are well prepared for life, study and work when they eventually leave school. Pupils speak with genuine enthusiasm about their school and about the help they get from the adults that teach and care for them. They enjoy their learning. However, some pupils said that their work can sometimes be too easy. Pupils benefit from many opportunities to develop their wider interests and knowledge about the world around them, for example through their regular community visits or from work experience. Many parents and carers speak in glowing terms about the substantial improvements they have seen in their children’s learning, attitudes and behaviour. One parent who responded to Ofsted’s online questionnaire, Parent View, wrote: ‘My child is very happy at Kennel Lane and it caters to his needs perfectly. All staff are friendly and helpful and the progress my son has made and continues to make is fantastic.’ However, some parents felt that their children could be pushed harder at school or expressed concern at the increased turnover in staff that the school has seen over the last year or so.
