School Description

Most pupils love this school. Those that attend have often previously had unhappy experiences of school. Some speak movingly about the difference this school has made. They feel understood and, because the school wants the very best for them, pupils start to do better personally and academically. Pupils know they are at school to learn. Adults are good at helping pupils do this, supporting them to build their stamina and resilience. Pupils are given time to think and process information. They work hard to remember and recall what they have learned. Pupils are rightly proud of their achievements and mostly keen to do well. For some pupils, this school provides social opportunities they have previously been denied. Pupils become active members of the community, for example through using the library, litter picking and holding charity cake sales. Many pupils experience a number of ‘firsts’, such as going to a theatre or restaurant. Pupils are confident they have an adult in school to go to with any worries. Any hint of bullying is tackled head-on. Staff are sensitive that sometimes pupils’ words and actions can seem to mean something pupils do not intend. Adults explore these issues openly with pupils.
