School Description

Parents and carers describe Turning Point Academy as a ‘lifeline’. Pupils describe the school as ‘amazing’. Pupils’ behaviour is outstanding. During the inspection, pupils behaved exceptionally well in class, during assemblies and when talking with inspectors about their learning. Pupils’ attendance significantly improves as soon as they start at the school. Pupils say that they always feel safe in school. They understand about discrimination and bullying. They say that neither of these take place at this school. Staff have very high expectations of pupils’ behaviour and achievement. Staff also form strong and trusting bonds with pupils. As a result, pupils try hard and become increasingly resilient. This helps them to make strong progress in reading, writing, mathematics and other subjects. Pupils enjoy ice-skating, visiting museums and going to the theatre. Pupils told us about their visit to Manley Mere. During a trip to London, they had a tour of the Houses of Parliament. Pupils raise funds for good causes. For example, they have supported local homeless charities. Recently, pupils donated their old teddy bears to children in Syria. Pupils understand democratic principles and like to present their views on the school council.
