School Description

Many pupils have missed significant time in education before arriving at this school. Staff help them make up for lost time. Pupils enjoy being in small classes. The school assesses their academic and social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs early on. Because of the curriculum and the therapeutic support provided, pupils settle well over time. Pupils develop trusting working relationships with staff. They view staff as helpful role models who understand them and their behavioural needs. Staff have high expectations of pupils’ work and behaviour. They act quickly and calmly when behaviour incidents occur. Pupils understand what bullying is. Pupils know to report any incidents of bullying should they occur. They have confidence that staff will resolve any issues. Leaders make sure that pupils have a broad enrichment offer. Wednesday afternoon activities are especially popular. Pupils can choose from art, cookery, coding, tennis and a range of sports. Friday ‘golden time’ is a reward for good work and behaviour. Pupils are proud to receive rewards in weekly celebration assemblies. Staff recognise pupils’ good work and their improved attendance and behaviour. Pupils appreciate the weekly positive contact the school has with parents and carers.
