School Description

Pupils enjoy coming to school. Parents are overwhelmingly positive about the nurture and individualised support their child receives. They say their children settle quickly and praise the school for helping their children re-engage with learning. However, the proprietor, who is also the headteacher, has not carried out statutory safeguarding duties effectively. This potentially puts pupils at risk. The school provides support for pupils with social and emotional needs, all of whom have experienced significant trauma. All pupils have special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). Many have struggled to learn in other settings. Some subjects within the curriculum are not designed well. This means that pupils do not build their knowledge over time. Staff have created a welcoming learning environment. They have high expectations of how they want pupils to behave. Pupils appreciate the rewards through the ‘ping ping’ system. They say the best thing in school is ‘the adults, as they are all supportive and caring’. Pupils say that bullying does not happen. Pupils talk clearly about how to keep physically and mentally healthy, including healthy eating. They know that everyone should be treated equally and with respect. However, pupils’ understanding of different cultures and religions is less well developed.
