School Description

Leaders aim to make sure that ‘no pupil will be left behind’. This is because they know pupils have reached the end of the road at their mainstream schools. At Southway, every pupil gets another shot at their education. Pupils know that the staff believe in them. The pupils feel happy to be there, feel valued and feel safe. All staff have high aspirations for the pupils. Leaders have made sure that pupils take subjects with worthwhile qualifications. This is so that they can either move back to their mainstream school, or go on to further education or training. Pupils know that there is a proper plan in place for them. Bullying is not a problem at school. Staff have carefully built up trust with pupils. There is a calmness around school, even when pupils feel stressed and anxious. Even so, pupils swear too much at and around staff. Expectations are generally high. Sometimes, pupils’ behaviour in class is disrespectful to others and to their teachers. Leaders allow pupils to go off-site at social times under staff supervision. However, staff stand by and watch while pupils smoke. Staff also smoke when off-site, in the sight of pupils, which does not set a good example.
