School Description

This is a caring school that supports pupils’ special educational needs well. Pupils arrive having had a difficult time in their earlier education. Right from the start, staff let every pupil know that they can achieve well. Pupils know the adults in school value them as individuals. At this school, they learn to develop trust, confidence and an interest in learning. Rewards help pupils to concentrate well on their learning activities. Finding supportive friends helps to make the school day enjoyable. Pupils are settled because teachers have a thorough understanding of how to meet emotional needs. Support staff are always on hand to help pupils with their behaviour and learning. Over time, pupils find helpful ways to cope with their anxieties and angry feelings. Older pupils told inspectors that the school has ‘majorly improved’ their behaviour. Parents and carers told inspectors that their family lives have ‘turned around’ as a result of their children now feeling happy and safe at school. Incidents of bullying are rare. Pupils know that they must tell a trusted adult. Staff sort out concerns quickly to prevent them happening again.

The Waterloo School Parent Reviews



Average Parent Rating


“Parent review”


In my experience as a parent, there is a lack of understanding of the child’s needs and not very supportive.
