School Description

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. You and your team are rightly proud of your school and say that it is a happy and supportive learning community. This was evident on the day of the inspection. The school provides its pupils with an education which matches as closely as possible that which they would receive in a mainstream school, while also meeting their individual needs effectively. Since the last inspection, you have successfully worked on addressing the areas for improvement that were highlighted at that time. This includes developing a suitable assessment framework and improving the quality of teaching through better matching of tasks to pupils’ abilities and improving their communication skills. The behaviour of pupils around the school and in lessons continues to be of the high standard reported in the last inspection. Attendance is good and exclusions rare. Pupils enjoy school and say that they have fun, are working hard and are having a good education. They also say that the teachers are kind. Staff reported the leadership of the school to be very supportive and encouraging in developing their skills and expertise. They say that they are proud to work at the school and that there is a good community spirit.
