Pupils, including those in the sixth form, are happy and safe at this school. Teachers and learning support assistants surround them with care and kindness. As a result, they have learned what it means to be kind to one another. Staff deal with incidents of bullying quickly and effectively. Many pupils have struggled in other schools. Some have missed large chunks of education completely. Every child is an individual here and so is the support they receive. Leaders make sure that they quickly identify pupils’ needs. This means that pupils settle quickly, make progress and thrive. All staff strive to support pupils to behave as well as they can. Pupils enjoy earning rewards through the stars system. They know that their efforts will be celebrated, and they respond very positively to praise. As a result, pupils work hard in lessons and enjoy their learning. Personal development is central to the school’s work. Every pupil has an ambitious target to help them work towards achieving independence. The Learning for Life curriculum is woven through everything pupils do. This means pupils have many varied opportunities to develop skills for independence.
