A Parent's Guide to Choosing a Special School


45 Thorpe Road

School Description

Pupils say that they feel safe at school. They enjoy productive working relationships with staff. They say that that there are adults they can go to if they have concerns. Staff help pupils with understanding road safety when moving across the two sites to attend lessons. However, pupils say that sometimes staff do not do enough to stop bullying or mean behaviour. In some lessons, pupils’ behaviour slows the learning of others. As at the previous inspection, pupils still do not receive a good enough quality of education. Pupils do not learn well as the curriculum is poorly planned and taught. Pupils enjoy the opportunities to learn life skills, such as cooking. They talk highly of their visits to the local farm where they can look after animals. They also enjoy their swimming sessions. Parents and carers who spoke to inspectors have mixed views about the school. However, they appreciate the additional support that leaders provide for pupils. Leaders access other professional services when necessary, so additional help is timely and not held up while waiting for annual reviews for education, health and care (EHC) plans.
