School Description

Pupils enjoy coming to school. They say teachers understand them. Pupils feel safe and say that school helps them to make friends. However, expectations of pupils are not high enough. Most pupils do not complete their work. Pupils do not do as well as they could. Pupils experience a jumbled set of lessons that do not cover learning in enough depth. In some lessons pupils are taught by staff who have limited subject knowledge. This hinders pupils’ learning. Pupils’ attitudes to learning are poor. Pupils show little respect. They direct derogatory comments towards female staff. This poor behaviour occurs during lessons, unstructured times, and within the community. Pupils’ negative behaviour often disrupts learning. Pupils say bullying does not happen. However, relationships are negative. Most pupils refer to interactions as ‘banter’. Pupils say that teachers intervene if this ‘goes too far’, but inspectors witnessed staff turning a blind eye to this harmful behaviour. Pupils’ attendance is not good enough. This leads to gaps in pupils’ learning that staff do not resolve. When pupils do attend, they are often late for lessons. This delay disrupts learning and other pupils who are trying to get on with their work.
