School Description

Staff and pupils develop strong working relationships. Leaders strive to help pupils address their emotional and mental health difficulties. They also seek to support pupils to overcome their barriers to learning. Leaders and staff create a warm environment where pupils are safe. Staff are well trained and work closely with therapists and other external agencies. Through this, staff gain a deep understanding of pupils’ individual needs and set pupils bespoke personal targets. These are designed to improve pupils’ social skills, emotional well-being and academic knowledge. With patience and care, staff help pupils to make strong progress towards meeting their targets. They prepare pupils well for the next stages of their lives when they leave this school. Staff deploy consistent and encouraging strategies to manage and improve pupils’ behaviour. This approach is effective in establishing a calm atmosphere. Staff teach pupils how to talk with each other maturely to resolve their disagreements. Should bullying occur, pupils, supported by staff, reconcile their differences. They get to understand how their actions affect others and consider what they should do differently in the future. Pupils are taught about how to help others. For example, they won a bid of £1,000 from the Mayor of London. They used this funding to put together care packages and then distributed these to the homeless and people experiencing mental health difficulties.
