School Description

Leaders have ensured that Wren Spinney School is a safe and caring environment for pupils with complex special educational needs and/or disabilities. Parents and carers support the school. Those who responded to the survey believe that their child is happy and safe. They say that the nurture and support that staff provide meet pupils’ needs. Communication between school staff and parents is good. Parents are regularly updated on their child’s progress. Most parents would recommend the school. Relationships between staff and pupils are very positive. There is a sense of teamwork as pupils and staff enjoy completing activities together. Staff know the pupils well. They ensure that they understand and meet the pupils’ complex needs. Pupils know that staff will look after them and help them to learn. Staff support pupils to communicate their needs in a variety of ways. They understand that some pupils may exhibit a range of behaviours associated with their additional needs. Staff respond well to occasions when pupils behave in ways that are not typical for them. Staff know that this behaviour may be caused by anxiety or distress, and so provide pupils with the necessary support. This support helps to ensure that bullying is incredibly rare.
