School Description

Staff’s expectations of pupils are inconsistent, and they are not challenged enough. Therefore, pupils do not develop knowledge and understanding well enough. They do not behave as well as they could. Leaders and staff have a deep understanding of pupils’ complex needs and the challenges they face. They get to know pupils very well. Many pupils have had negative experiences of education in the past. Staff work hard to nurture pupils so that they are happy and safe. Pupils’ trust in school is rebuilt so they can learn. One pupil summarised this as, ‘This school helps everyone in different ways.’ Pupils are confident that adults will sort things out if they go wrong. If bullying happens, staff take it seriously and act quickly. Leaders and staff prioritise supporting pupils to become confident citizens who are physically and mentally healthy. Even with the challenges of the recent pandemic, leaders remain highly ambitious for the school. They have strengthened the curriculum and safeguarding practices. They know what they need to do next so that the quality of education and behaviour become more consistent, and pupils are challenged more.
