School Description

Despite a quiet reluctance to admit it, pupils are proud of their school. One reflected, ‘We don’t always appreciate it as much as we should.’ Relationships between pupils and staff are very positive despite the challenges some pupils pose when finding it hard to focus. Pupils appreciate that staff ‘notice problems, are honest with you, patient, and respectful of what you say, including when you apologise’. Pupils acknowledge that behaviour is not perfect here and that their personal relationships are sometimes strained. However, they also feel that problems are addressed fairly and dealt with well by staff, helping to build trust and creating an atmosphere of mutual respect. Teachers have high aspirations for pupils. They know pupils well. They understand the important balance between developing pupils’ self-esteem and emotional wellbeing at the same time as challenging them to realise the potential they have to become successful learners once more. Pupils particularly enjoy the tea and papers periods that start most days. These sessions include pupils choosing articles to read aloud to the group, followed by discussion and debate. Much learning takes place, as well as tangible advances in pupils’ sense of self-esteem and understanding of the world around them.
