School Description

Pupils’ personal development and their well-being are at the heart of everything that happens at Stradbroke. Pupils develop trusting and positive relationships with staff. Pupils feel safe and happy in school. This is because they know that staff care about them and sort out any problems sensitively. Pupils told us that bullying is not tolerated and that it hardly ever happens. Staff know and understand the circumstances of each pupil. They set clear expectations for behaviour and learning. Pupils respond to these well. Pupils join Stradbroke after very difficult past experiences. Staff foster pupils’ strengths and listen to their hopes and ambitions for the future. Over time, pupils learn to value themselves and engage in purposeful learning. Leaders make sure that pupils learn a range of subjects. Staff support older pupils to embark on accredited courses and work experience placements. However, the curriculum is developing. Leaders have not thought about each subject in enough detail to gain a secure picture of what they want pupils to learn and when. Some subjects are not planned or delivered well. Pupils’ personalised plans do not include all aspects of their learning and pastoral development. Their targets are not specific enough. Staff work together well to support pupils. However, pupils’ end goals are not clearly defined. Their goals are not understood by everyone concerned with their education.
