School Description

Pupils do not achieve as well as they could. This is because leaders’ expectations of pupils could be higher. Some pupils attain GCSE qualifications in English and mathematics. However, pupils do not do as well in other subjects. There are variations in how well the curriculum plans in these other subjects set out the knowledge pupils need to learn or the order they need to learn it. Pupils feel safe. This is because caring staff make them feel at ease and build trusting relationships with them. There is little bullying at the school because teachers intervene quickly so that any problems with misbehaviour are remedied. However, some pupils do not attend the school as often as they should. Pupils are offered a range of subjects to study. These include training in hair and beauty or mechanical engineering qualifications at alternative providers. Pupils enjoy these placements. Their attendance at these settings is often more frequent than their attendance at the school. Some pupils leave the school or their placements without permission. This means that some pupils are at risk for the time they are absent from the school or their placements. Leaders have not acted appropriately to reduce the risks of this happening again.
