Quotes from our Ofsted report

“An individualised curriculum enables pupils to make good progress from their individual starting points. Pupils access learning that is relevant to their needs and teachers provide effective support.”

“The school tracks progress effectively and provides pupils with aspirational targets. Many pupils have previously experienced a disrupted education. Their attainment is often below average when they join the school. Teachers use initial assessment and progress information to support lesson planning which corresponds to pupils’ needs. Most pupils make good progress over time and, for others, their knowledge and understanding are improving quickly.”

“The curriculum includes opportunities for pupils to experience learning in a range of contexts, including outdoors and off-site. This ensures that pupils are motivated to engage with their learning. Pupils take a range of qualifications appropriate to their abilities and aspirations. Outcomes are good.”

“Effective therapeutic input helps pupils to become more emotionally resilient, improving their behaviour and helping their readiness for learning.”

“The quality of teaching, including in the sixth form, is good. Strong subject knowledge, planning and positive relationships make a big difference to how well pupils engage in lessons.”

“At the end of every term, the school provides detailed information about pupils’ progress to parents. This includes information about attendance, behaviour and extra-curricular activities. Staff at the school work closely with individual parents, which sustains the good progress of pupils.”

“The school has strong links with parents, carers and outside agencies. These help to ensure that staff meet pupils’ needs and potential problems affecting pupils outside the school are minimised.”
