School Description

This school meets pupils’ needs. In many cases, pupils have missed a lot of school or have had difficulties in other schools. When they come to St Paul’s, their attendance usually improves. In addition, they learn things that will help them get jobs when they are older. Pupils’ behaviour is often challenging. Staff manage this carefully. They teach pupils about the damage caused by bullying, and they stop it if it happens in school. They also help pupils to understand the impact of poor choices, both on themselves and others. When pupils get upset or angry, staff help them to calm down. Staff know a lot about safeguarding. They do the right things to protect pupils. Pupils have English and mathematics lessons every day. Older pupils work towards qualifications. Those who need help with reading, get what they need. In other subjects, curriculum plans are not so well organised, but pupils do experience a broad range of activities. A particular feature of the school is its focus on work-based learning. Through links with different organisations, pupils learn about different careers. This helps them to make informed choices about what they want to do when they leave school.
