School Description

This is a school that successfully re-engages pupils in their learning. Staff are deeply committed to making a difference to pupils’ lives. Most pupils who join the school have previously experienced difficulty and disruption to their education. Pupils say that they feel valued and accepted here. Most pupils enjoy school and attend well. They focus in lessons and work well together. Staff have high expectations of pupils’ behaviour. They work with pupils to create a calm environment where everyone is respected. Pupils learn about people who are different. They show empathy and understanding to others. Bullying is rare. If it does happen, it is dealt with quickly by staff. Pupils do not achieve as well academically as they do socially and personally. Aspects of the curriculum lack ambition and can sometimes limit pupils’ opportunities for academic success. Some subjects are not well planned or sequenced to help pupils build on what they already know. Leaders have plans to improve the curriculum. They know that there is more to do. Leaders provide pupils with real-life experiences. Pupils enjoy practical work in the motor vehicle workshop, as well as sailing and cycling in local parks.
