A Parent's Guide to Choosing a Special School


87 Payne Avenue

School Description

Pupils at The Lioncare School feel safe and settled. For many, this is a new and welcome experience. All pupils at the school need support to manage their emotions and mental health. Staff help pupils to understand and cope with big feelings with compassion and patience. Pupils rarely take their anger out on others, and any instances of bullying are quickly identified and challenged. Pupils described the family feel of the school, and said that they appreciate the care that staff provide for them. One pupil described the staff as ‘super rocket nice’ and told inspectors that he trusted staff to look after him. Pupils know they are at school to learn. They benefit from the focus on reading, writing and mathematics. They work hard in lessons and are proud of the work they produce. Pupils love the topics they study and the opportunities to improve their understanding of different cultures, beliefs and lifestyles. For example, pupils learned about the Black Lives Matter movement and the historical and cultural impact of racism in the United Kingdom and abroad. Work such as this helps pupils to be respectful and curious about the world and people they will encounter in the future.
