School Description

The behaviour of some pupils affects the calm running of the school. Pupils say that this behaviour makes it difficult for them to learn. Too often, information about how to help pupils is not shared with staff. This means that strategies staff use to try to support behaviour and learning are not always effective. Pupils state that bullying has been a problem, and although leaders have done work around this, it has not really improved. Leaders’ poor record-keeping makes it hard to see the impact of this work. Expectations of pupils and what they are able to learn are too variable. Pupils learn and remember more in lessons where teachers know their subject well and the order in which to teach it. Pupils enjoy mathematics and English. They improve their knowledge and skills in these subjects. In other subjects, pupils do not learn as well. Some areas of the curriculum are significantly underdeveloped. Pupils are taught in small groups, supported by staff who know them well. Pupils speak highly of their relationships with staff and feel they can talk to them openly. They say that staff look after them and make them feel safe. Pupils also learn outside of the classroom. They enjoy visits to sports facilities and places of worship.
