School Description

Pupils’ experiences at the school have deteriorated since the last inspection. Some pupils are very happy and are doing well. Others find the many staff changes very stressful and unsettling. This hinders their well-being. Staff at the school are kind. Parents and carers value this and make sure their child attends regularly. Staff work hard to look after pupils, but they do not meet pupils’ needs. Some staff do not plan activities matched to what pupils need to learn or to the targets in their education, health and care (EHC) plans. This limits pupils’ progress. Pupils feel safe and many like their teachers. Staff greet pupils at the start of the day and help them to get focused for learning. However, leaders have not made sure that pupils are safe when they are learning in alternative provision. Trust leaders do not have a clear idea of what they want to provide for pupils. Pupils’ behaviour has got worse over time. Leaders blame funding and staffing difficulties. They have not considered what needs to change at the school. Some pupils do lots of different activities. However, leaders have not checked if all pupils get these opportunities or if some miss out.
