A Parent's Guide to Choosing a Special School

School Description

Pupils enjoy the calm and settled atmosphere that exists in the school. They enjoy their lessons and say that they have good discussions that are often fun. Teachers know them well. There is mutual respect between adults and pupils that enables learning to take place. Pupils told inspectors that they have confidence that adults would sort out any bullying. They know this because bullying had happened in the past, but now is very rare. This is a new school. All teachers were employed in January 2021. They came from schools that are very different from this school, and so are still adjusting to their new roles. They are not yet totally secure with planning and delivering a bespoke curriculum for each pupil. However, all staff have developed strong relationships with the pupils and with one another. Parents and carers who made written responses to Ofsted’s Parent View survey were overwhelmingly supportive of the school. A typical comment was: ‘Even when my child was very unwell, staff did not give up.’ Staff from the hospital ward support pupils in the classroom. When pupils are unwell, teachers sometimes teach them on the ward. The teaching staff and the ward staff get on very well and support one another.
