School Description

TLC The Learning Centre gives pupils a distinctive experience. Pupils enjoy coming to the school because it is a secure place in which to learn and grow, and plan for the future. Everyone has pupils’ well-being and learning as their priorities. Leaders and staff work together to create a highly positive climate where all pupils are valued. There is a shared commitment to high expectations that informs everything staff do. The approach is neither too lax nor too strict. It hits the right balance between setting clear boundaries and enabling pupils to learn well, deal with their anxieties and build their confidence. This helps pupils to be resilient in the face of challenges. Support for pupils to achieve academically and develop their personal skills is interwoven so that each contributes to the other. For example, staff understand that learning is the key to raising pupils’ self-esteem, and vice versa. The success of this approach shows in lots of ways. Classrooms are purposeful, with staff and pupils taking learning seriously. There is little, if any, disruption to lessons because staff calmly but firmly make their expectations clear. The school’s ethos makes clear that bullying will not be tolerated. Incidents are very rare, and dealt with effectively. Pupils are kept safe and feel safe.
