A Parent's Guide to Choosing a Special School



School Description

The high level of care and nurture that staff provide for pupils is the hallmark of this school. Leaders and staff know the pupils exceptionally well. They understand the complexity of pupils’ special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). Pupils feel safe because staff look after them. Positive relationships exist between staff and pupils. Staff maintain clear routines and understand pupils’ emotional triggers. As a result, staff deal with any issues quickly and successfully. They support pupils to manage their emotions and behaviour well. Bullying is unlikely to happen due to the high level of supervision. However, staff are alert to any signs that bullying could occur and step in quickly if needed. The proprietor body and leaders have introduced a range of positive changes across the school since it opened. Changes reflect the high expectations they have for all pupils and staff. However, there is more to do to improve the curriculum and the quality of education across the school. Parents are overwhelmingly positive about the school. In particular, they appreciate the fact that their children are happy and that staff know their children ‘inside out’. Parents are relieved and assured that their children are cared for.

There is no set catchment area as pupils are admitted from a wide variety of postcodes and, in the case of boarding schools, from outside the UK.
