School Description

Pupils arrive happily each morning. They smile and move excitedly as they get off the school bus and notice the familiar faces of their teachers and support staff. All staff have very high expectations of themselves and the pupils. They do not allow pupils’ needs to become barriers. Leaders have established very effective partnerships with a wide range of professionals, including therapists and nurses. Everybody works together well to make sure that pupils succeed in all areas of their learning and development. Staff are excellent at using each pupil’s individual way of communicating. They check that pupils are happy, safe and engaged in their learning. Staff make lessons fun and exciting because they know each pupil’s likes and interests. Every pupil is involved in whole-school events because staff know exactly how to adapt things to match each pupil’s needs. Staff told us that they always find a way to include pupils in activities the school offers. Pupils take part in cooking, swimming, sports and music sessions. Pupils enjoy times when they learn alongside or with their classmates. Staff help pupils to interact with their friends. They are always looking for ways to increase pupils’ independence. Bullying is not a problem in the school. Pupils always behave well.
