School Description

Since the previous inspection, your school has become a foundation school within The Compass Trust. This trust comprises four special schools within Newcastle-uponTyne local authority, with the local authority being the fifth member of the trust. The school operates on two adjacent sites, one for primary and one for secondary and post-16 provision. You and other senior leaders have successfully addressed the recommendations from the previous inspection report. The development of middle leadership, one of the areas for improvement, has been very successful. Your governors have developed their ability to hold you and other leaders in the school to account in a challenging and supportive way. Recent refinement of roles, to align more closely with the leadership responsibilities in school, have helped the governing body develop and implement its broader strategic responsibilities more effectively. You and your governors have not ensured that the school’s website includes all the required published information, that the school development plan includes more clearly defined milestones to aid ongoing assessment of school improvements, and that the varied approaches to pupil assessment are streamlined and consolidated.
