School Description

Pupils do well at this calm and welcoming school, where every minute is viewed as a learning moment. Leaders and staff set high expectations. They want pupils to attend regularly, behave well and achieve academic success. Pupils learn to enjoy school and feel safe. Younger pupils are taught how to manage their behaviour and are helped to become good learners. Pupils have trust in the staff and say there is always an adult to talk to and help them. Bullying or poor behaviour is not tolerated. Staff work together to support pupils’ learning. They quickly resolve any conflicts. Staff support pupils who are experiencing difficulties to manage their behaviour. Pupils try their best and take pride in their work. Sequences of lessons are carefully planned so pupils can achieve GCSEs and other qualifications. Any pupils who are behind are helped to catch up. Reading is fostered well. Pupils enjoy a large range of carefully planned experiences, including trips which are varied and frequent. These help pupils learn how to interact, work together and gain new skills and knowledge. Tending the allotment and learning how to cook are popular choices. These all help to build pupils’ self-esteem and social skills, and to broaden their horizons.
