School Description

Pupils feel happy and safe at LWS. They like the school because staff care about them. Pupils feel that staff help them to cope with their social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs so that they have a better chance of doing well in the outside world. Pupils say that staff are quick to help if there are any issues such as bullying. Relationships between staff and pupils are typically positive and respectful. Leaders have made sure that the school is a much calmer place than it used to be. Pupils like the ‘ready to learn’ room where they can refocus if they need to. They say that this has helped classrooms to be more settled and purposeful. Pupils take a wider range of GCSEs and other qualifications than previously. Most gain a college place when they leave the school. However, leaders have not thought carefully enough about how to help pupils who are behind to learn the basic skills they need to be able to read and write well. Pupils enjoy a range of clubs and activities at breaktime such as art club and football club. They appreciate the regular trips, for example a visit to a local castle or to Parliament.
