School Description

This is a kind and caring school. Pupils feel happy, safe and secure. They form exceptionally trusting relationships with staff. Each morning, when they start their day, pupils are delighted to greet their friends. Behaviour is exceptional. The school deals well with any incidents of bullying. This school excels in meeting pupils’ differing needs. As one parent said, ‘Mary Rose have correctly identified my child’s needs and they fulfil them with great sensitivity.’ Those pupils who have difficulty regulating their emotions are taught to recognise the triggers that cause their anxieties. They are helped to calmly carry on with their work. Those pupils who need to develop their communication skills are gently supported to find an approach that works for them. By using signs, symbols or equipment, pupils learn to make choices about the activities they want to engage in. This reduces their sense of isolation and helps them to flourish. There are the highest expectations for pupils. Staff are committed to developing pupils’ independence. They prepare pupils exceptionally well for their future lives. All pupils who have left the school in the last few years have moved on to college or another specialist provision.
