School Description

Many pupils who attend Urban Mission have had challenging experiences in mainstream schools. Typically, their self-esteem is low. Pupils enjoy the family atmosphere and the warm welcome they receive. They prepare and eat lunch with staff each day. Pupils make friends straight away. Older pupils look out for younger pupils. Pupils enjoy a strong professional relationship with their key worker. This helps them to settle quickly. Pupils feel safe. Being ‘Montagues’ or ‘Capulets’ as part of the house system gives pupils a sense of belonging. Pupils have a strong understanding of equality. They learn to be respectful of each other’s differences. Pupils celebrate cultural awareness days. They wear traditional clothing and share food. There is no bullying reported in the school. During weekly ‘housekeeping’ sessions, pupils hold each other to account for their behaviour. They do this in a mature fashion. Pupils are confident that any friendship issues will be resolved swiftly. With the help of the school’s trauma-informed approach, pupils improve their behaviour. They start to catch up on missed learning. Over time, pupils rise to teachers’ high expectations of them.
