School Description

Leaders and staff support pupils to achieve and succeed. Staff help pupils to believe in their own abilities and to grow in confidence. Pupils are extremely positive about the school. They say, for example, ‘being here has changed me for the better’. The school has a positive atmosphere and pupils feel safe and cared for. Pupils are friendly and socialise together. They show respect for differences between people. Staff develop constructive relationships with pupils. They have a good understanding of pupils’ anxieties and vulnerabilities. They are skilled at helping pupils to calm down and adapt their own behaviour. Staff deal with incidents of poor behaviour patiently and skilfully. Pupils are confident that staff will deal with any bullying effectively. Teachers adapt activities to meet each pupil’s learning and social needs. Staff place a strong emphasis on helping pupils to manage risks that they may experience. Pupils develop a good understanding of how to keep themselves safe, for example when using the internet. They know how to keep healthy and well. Pupils are keen to learn because staff plan an interesting and worthwhile curriculum. Pupils’ attendance, behaviour and attitudes to learning improve because of the work of staff. Pupils would welcome further opportunities to contribute positively to the work of the school and share their ideas.
