School Description

Side by Side School gives children and pupils the highest quality of care and support. The school changes pupils’ lives for the better. Staff’s dedication to pupils’ well-being is powerful. It ensures that every pupil, from the little ones to the oldest students, are treated as individuals. Staff understand each pupil’s different challenges to learning and celebrate their unique achievements. As a result, pupils develop their knowledge and skills well and their special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) are met effectively. Staff know pupils and their families extremely well. They keep parents and carers up to date with their children’s work and development. Pupils’ attendance is high and staff always know why pupils are absent. Parents speak highly of the school’s provision and the care their children receive. Staff manage pupils’ behaviour with sensitivity. Pupils’ needs are dealt with patiently and calmly. Teachers and learning support staff are quick to step in and help pupils and each other. Bullying is rare. The safety of pupils is of the utmost importance. Pupils learn in a secure and welcoming environment.
