School Description

Pupils are not safe in this school. They are unhappy. Some staff and parents and carers share this view. Pupils’ behaviour is poor in lessons and at social times. At times, pupils’ behaviour can be dangerous and intimidating. Leaders and staff do not routinely demonstrate high expectations for pupils’ conduct. Leaders have not ensured that staff have the skills that they need to improve pupils’ complex behaviours. Pupils experience bullying and derogatory language often. Some pupils reported that leaders act quickly and effectively to stop this reoccurring. Yet other pupils, including those with learning difficulties, continue to experience serious bullying. Staff do not deal with these issues successfully. Leaders want pupils to succeed, but they have not ensured that pupils achieve well across many subjects, including reading. The curriculum does not provide pupils with suitable opportunities to develop the knowledge and skills that they need. Staff do not adapt their teaching to meet pupils’ special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). Some pupils enjoy using the on-site gym and raising money for local charities. They told inspectors about baking cakes to sell for charity. They benefit from activities such as music workshops and visits. However, most pupils receive a limited offer beyond the academic curriculum. Pupils do not receive a curriculum that prepares them well for life in modern Britain.
