A Parent's Guide to Choosing a Special School


Newhaven Road

School Description

Pupils are happy in school. They feel safe and secure. Pupils who spoke with the inspector during the inspection were impeccably polite. They commented perceptively about their experiences of school. Relationships between adults and pupils are a notable strength of the school. Adults work hard to earn and maintain pupils’ respect and pupils respond in kind. Staff are committed to helping pupils to discover and develop new interests. Extra activities and special events help to build pupils’ confidence and contribute well to their enjoyment of school. For example, at the time of the inspection several pupils were keenly looking forward to joining a local cricket team. Pupils enjoy using the school’s extensive and attractive grounds during breaktimes and usually do so sensibly. They feel that most pupils behave well. Some pupils have understandably found the process of adjusting to recent changes in the school quite challenging. However, they are adapting well to raised expectations of their learning and behaviour. Occasionally, pupils need a gentle reminder about their behaviour. Adults intervene calmly when this is the case. Pupils stated in a recent survey that bullying is rarely a problem and records support this view. Leaders follow up any concerns about bullying promptly and appropriately, including liaising with agencies, such as children’s services, where appropriate.
