Old Beauvale School

School Description

The school is friendly and welcoming. It provides good quality education and support for pupils who have often spent long periods of time out of education. Pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), benefit from carefully planned curriculum pathways. These are tailored to meet pupils’ individual needs. Staff treat pupils with respect. They support and nurture pupils well. Staff make pupils feel welcome in the school hub environment and as part of the outreach service. They develop trusting relationships with staff. Pupils learn to understand and manage their behaviour. The school hub is a calm ‘workplace environment’ that helps pupils to become interested in education again. Pupils enjoy collecting points to exchange for money to buy appropriate gifts with the consent of their parents and carers. These gifts are purchased as a reward for their good behaviour, engagement and attendance. They develop positive attitudes towards learning and school. They say they feel safe here. There are few incidents of poor behaviour or bullying. Pupils say that staff deal fairly with any incidents that do occur. Pupils are confident to talk to adults in the school if they are worried. As one pupil said, ‘I feel I can talk to any of the staff. They are always there to listen.’
