School Description

Pupils enjoy going to school. They learn how to communicate with their teachers and other adults using their language skills, signs and symbols. They know what to do if they are feeling upset or worried. Staff are very skilled at looking after pupils and helping them if they become distressed. The parents I spoke to really valued this. They also told me that the school deals with any concerns promptly and well. Pupils and staff get on well together. Pupils work hard in lessons. They often work in very small groups, learning by taking part in practical activities. Teachers are good at planning lessons that keep pupils engaged and busy. Pupils learn a wide range of things that help them become more independent. This includes learning how to look after themselves and getting on well with other people. They develop skills and knowledge that help them cope in different social situations. For example, they learn how to use a bus timetable, practise catching a bus, and knowing when to get off, and paying the fare. Pupils have learned what bullying is. All those we spoke to said that it does not happen in school, and that they feel safe.
