A Parent's Guide to Choosing a Special School


Hereford Road

School Description

Pupils at Overton School form trusting relationships with staff. They feel safe. Staff are caring and kind. They take the time to get to know their pupils well. They pay serious attention to meeting pupils’ individual needs, and to their wishes and feelings. This all helps pupils to enjoy school and achieve well. Leaders want the best for every child. There is a strong emphasis on maximising independence and preparing pupils for their future lives. As part of this work, many pupils participate in a wide range of activities outside of the classroom. These activities are extensive. They include horse riding, a gardening club and many more. The school environment is very calm. Pupils are eager to learn. They listen closely to the adults that work with them. For some pupils, their special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) mean that they sometimes find it hard to control their behaviour. Staff manage this well. They work with pupils in a patient, respectful and consistent way. Very occasionally, pupils fall out with each other. Staff are alert to this. They work quickly to help pupils put things right.
