School Description

Every pupil is made to feel special in this school, no matter what their background. Pupils receive high-quality care and attention that are well matched to their needs. As a result, they thoroughly enjoy attending the school. Pupils behave remarkably well throughout the school day. When the bell goes after break, they make their way straight to lessons without any reminders from staff. Pupils told us that this is normal. In lessons, pupils settle down to work quickly. Staff are very alert to pupils’ feelings and emotions. They know exactly when to step in to provide extra care and attention so that learning can continue without interruption. Bullying is rare. Pupils trust adults to sort out any problems should they occur. Staff care deeply about pupils. If any child is feeling anxious, staff are quick to provide the care they need to help them get back into the ‘green zone’. Leaders ensure that pupils leave the school ready for the next stage, be it education, work or training. All pupils move on in this way. They gain the skills and knowledge needed to become more independent and confident about themselves. Indeed, this is the main goal for all pupils shared by staff, governors, parents and carers.
