School Description

This is a good school. Pupils enjoy the wide range of subjects and courses they study. They also like the rewards they earn for meeting their targets. Teaching groups are small, and pupils receive a lot of individual support. Pupils say they feel safe and can easily talk to staff about any worries. Pupils who come to Meadowcroft may have struggled to cope in their previous setting or may not have been attending school. School leaders quickly work out what pupils know and can do. Each pupil has their own ‘passport’ that explains what will help them to learn and be happy at school. Staff use this information well. School leaders recognise how important it is that pupils become confident readers. Leaders make sure that staff have the training and resources to teach reading effectively. Pupils are proud of becoming better readers. Behaviour in lessons is good. Pupils say bullying is rare and if anyone is unkind staff sort it out quickly. Some pupils can be unsettled at times around the school. However, staff are quick to help these pupils get back to learning. Most parents are happy with the school. One parent said, ‘this school changes children’s lives: it is not just an education’.
