Special schools provide a unique and distinctive educational environment to meet the needs of the pupils in their community. Undertaking standard tests may not be appropriate and we do not show performance data for special schools.

School Description

Pupils’ experiences at school are mixed. In key stage 2, pupils are well cared for. They make good progress. Staff have high expectations. However, the school fails pupils in key stages 3 and 4. Pupils do not make the progress they are capable of because staff do not manage behaviour in lessons well. They do not take into account the pupils’ special needs. The work set often lacks challenge and does not build on what pupils already know. Leaders want pupils to do well. Many go on to study at college. However, the majority of pupils do not continue in education or gain employment when they leave. This is because they are not fully prepared for life beyond school. Learning is disrupted by poor behaviour. Pupils say that behaviour is dealt with differently by different staff. They are not clear about the consequences when they do not behave. Sometimes, the way that behaviour is managed by staff puts pupils’ safety at risk. Not all pupils are happy in school. Pupils say that bullying happens, but staff sort it out. Pupils say that some staff listen to them, help them to stay safe and support them when they find things difficult.
