A Parent's Guide to Choosing a Special School


First Lane

School Description

Pupils appreciate the education that The Holden School provides. They told us that the school has helped them to get back into education. Most pupils now have much more positive attitudes to learning because of the school’s work. Pupils are fond of the staff. Staff help pupils to behave well for much of the time. Parents and carers are grateful that their children attend the school. They told us that their children have been happier and more settled since joining. Pupils feel safe in school. Staff encourage pupils to be kind to each other. Some of the pupils are starting to become good friends with each other. Bullying is rare. Any incidents are dealt with by staff. Staff are ambitious for all pupils. They expect pupils to concentrate and work hard, particularly in English and mathematics. Pupils benefit from a range of activities that enhance their personal development. For example, pupils enjoyed a recent visit from a pair of owls and a trip to Knowsley Safari Park. Pupils develop an understanding of how we are all different and special. They develop their knowledge of different religions by learning about celebrations such as Rosh Hashanah.
