School Description

Pupils grow in confidence and make friends at this school. They enjoy physical activities such as bushcraft and football in the extensive grounds. Pupils are kept safe because they are supervised well. They form strong professional relationships with adults in the school, including their key workers, so that they have someone to talk to about any concerns. Leaders have high expectations for pupils’ behaviour and all that they will achieve. Pupils were polite and respectful to inspectors, reflecting maturely on their experience of school. Pupils receive lots of support so that their behaviour and attendance improve. On occasions when pupils have difficulty managing their behaviour, staff are swift to help them to make the right choices. Staff are alert to any bullying and work closely with pupils to resolve any fallings out. Teaching, support and clinical staff get to know pupils very well. They encourage pupils to learn more about subjects that spark their interests and gain knowledge and skills that are useful to them in everyday life. Pupils have opportunities to discover and develop their talents, for example in art, music and cookery. Pupils typically have the view that, at the school there are ‘a lot of fun things and learning as well’.
