School Description

The quality of education pupils currently receive is not good enough. Too many pupils do not learn as well they could. This includes when learning to read. New leaders know this and have started to take swift action. Pupils are happy. They like the adults who care for them. They appreciate that staff treat them with dignity and respect. Staff know pupils’ needs well. Pupils easily express their feelings verbally, pictorially or through signing. This means they can be understood and are listened to. Pupils receive appropriate provision for their social, emotional and medical needs. Positive friendships are made. Pupils enjoy breaktimes, playing football and film club. Pupils are supported to manage their feelings safely. However, there are still instances of unkind behaviour. Staff address this, and consequently, incidents are reducing. Pupils like getting certificates when they follow the school values in their day-to-day lives. They have trips to sports activities and the library. They have raised funds at a Christmas fayre. The school council suggests ideas to improve the school. Pupils and parents would like more clubs, trips and work experience to support pupils to gain confidence out in the local community.
