School Description

Pupils at St John’s, including those in the sixth form, are happy, safe and well cared for. Leaders know pupils well and have high expectations of what they are able to achieve. Staff plan fun activities that interest pupils and help them to learn. Pupils told us that they love going on the bikes, singing, playing football, going shopping and having friends. Pupils get a lot of support from the teachers and therapists. This helps them to behave and communicate well. Staff help pupils to explain how they are feeling. Pupils learn to do this by using objects, pictures, sign language or words. This helps pupils to let staff know what they like and want to do. Staff are very alert to pupils’ feelings and emotions. They know exactly when to step in to provide extra care and attention so that learning can continue without interruption. Bullying is very rare. When it does happen, staff deal with it effectively. Leaders ensure that pupils leave the school ready for the next stage in their lives, be it education, work or training. Pupils gain the skills and knowledge they need to become more independent and confident. This is the main goal for all pupils. It is shared by staff, governors, parents and carers.
