School Description

Pupils love coming to Tor View School. They told us how proud they are to be part of an exciting and engaging learning community. Staff have an exceptional understanding of each pupil in their care. They have very high expectations for pupils’ academic and personal development. Sometimes, due to their underlying special educational needs and disabilities, pupils struggle to communicate how they are feeling. This can lead to them exhibiting challenging behaviour. Staff understand the tell-tale signs that indicate that pupils are feeling frustrated. Adults help pupils to manage their own feelings and to make positive choices so that learning is not disrupted. This is especially the case in the intensive support centre.
