School Description

Pupils are proud of their school. They feel that all pupils, no matter what their needs, are valued and included in all school activities. Pupils support each other and work well together to enjoy an exciting range of subjects. For example, the drama group is busy preparing for the summer musical production. Other pupils are carefully making products in design technology to sell in the local market. Pupils are happy and settled. They thrive in school. Leaders have high expectations for pupils. The focus on personal development, communication and independence allows pupils to achieve well. Many pupils exceed their education, health and care (EHC) plan targets. Pupils get on well with each other. They also have warm and trusting relationships with staff. Sometimes, pupils may fall out and feel bullied. When this happens, staff help pupils to understand the impact of any unkind words and help pupils to resolve any differences. This ensures that pupils learn to understand each other and respect and accept each other’s uniqueness. School is a safe place, where pupils know that they have adults they can talk to and share any worries with. Adults deal with any incidents of bullying effectively. Pupils know that staff will keep them safe.
