School Description

Pupils love coming to Palmerston School. This is reflected in their high attendance and exemplary behaviour. Pupils who spoke with inspectors said that they are happy and feel safe in school. They reported that bullying is not an issue. If it does occur, they said that it is dealt with quickly. Leaders and staff have very high expectations of pupils and are committed to developing their independence. Staff work tirelessly together to provide an education that is carefully tailored to each pupil’s individual needs. Pupils work hard and achieve highly. They celebrate others’ achievements and contributions through assemblies. Each morning, pupils have the option of attending the breakfast club, which helps to settle and prepare them for the rest of the day. Pupils feel that teachers really care about them. They have excellent relationships with their teachers. Pupils learn to trust staff. This helps them to feel secure. It also helps them to develop their communication skills. Pupils enjoy taking part in a very wide range of activities including swimming, trampolining and outdoor education. These help them to improve their physical skills and confidence. Older pupils benefit from well-planned work experience, such as in a local café. Pupils are exceptionally well prepared for adult life.
