School Description

Pupils do not get a good deal at this school. The behaviour of a growing minority of pupils has become unruly, unkind and unsafe. Bullying is not dealt with well enough. Many pupils rightly told us that they feel very worried about coming to the school. There is not enough support for pupils’ personal development and well-being. Serious safeguarding concerns have not been acted on promptly enough. Pupils are finding this year a challenge. Because there have been many staff changes, some pupils feel they have lost the trusted adults that they can talk to when they have concerns. Too many pupils do not have enough respect for each other or their teachers. Leaders and staff have not been effective in managing pupils’ behaviour and it has quickly got worse. Although many pupils want to work hard in lessons and achieve well, they find this difficult. Sometimes this is because of other pupils’ poor behaviour, and sometimes it is because the subject is not taught well enough. Over time, pupils do not achieve enough in a wide range of subjects. Pupils’ examination results are much lower than those of other pupils nationally and are declining.
