School Description

Pupils do not receive a meaningful and appropriate education that meets their special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). Expectations for their achievement are low. Pupils do not learn what they should in many subjects. As a result, they are ill equipped for the next stage in their education. Pupils arrive at the school with very mixed experiences of education. Overall, they are happy at Thomas Ashton School. They like being in small classes and they enjoy being with their friends. However, pupils’ behaviour is not managed well. This means that pupils frequently hear swear words or derogatory language. A significant minority of pupils display aggression at times towards others. The school does not support pupils well enough to develop respectful relationships with their peers and adults. Pupils have opportunities to work in the local community. For example, they have recently engaged in activities with the residents at the local nursing home. Pupils also hold regular events to support a variety of local and national charities.
