School Description

For many pupils attending Overley Hall School, it is a life-changing experience. Staff give pupils another chance to succeed in education after previous negative experiences. Leaders ensure that thorough initial assessments identify pupils’ needs. Staff also ensure they find out what interests and motivates each pupil. Leaders and staff use this information to develop a tailored curriculum. The aim of the curriculum is for all pupils to achieve their potential. However, for a small group of pupils, the academic curriculum is not always as challenging as it could be. Pupils’ personal development is the driving force of the curriculum offer. Staff build up pupils’ ability to regulate their emotions. Pupils appreciate therapies such as ‘Brad time’. This, in turn, enables pupils to access learning. Pupils receive high-quality input to develop their communication skills. This ensures that their voice is heard throughout the learning process. Staff have high expectations of pupils’ behaviour. Pupils respond well to these expectations. When some pupils find situations challenging, staff are skilful in supporting pupils to manage their emotions and anxieties. This helps pupils to feel safe. They say that bullying does not happen. When leaders perceive that it might be happening, they respond quickly.
