  • ‘very impressed with the school’s clear sense of purpose in preparing its students for life after school. ’

    ASD report Dec 2017

  • ‘Pupils' relationships with adults are excellent, and they learn respect and appropriate behaviour from the staff. Pupils are accepting of each other’s varying needs, and show pleasure in each other’s successes.’

    Ofsted report

Safeguarding - A very high standard of safeguarding is achieved using a rigorous approach and high expectations, with systems and reporting understood and used by all staff, who are all alert to the needs of pupils.

Behaviour - Behaviour management has a great positive impact on pupils and their progress. A caring and compassionate approach is underpinned by rigorous training, consistency, a deep understanding of all pupils and with strategies tailored for each pupil.

Curriculum - The curriculum is tailored to each pupil and provides learning and relevant life skills with all staff understanding the individual needs of pupils. A priority of the learning is to make experiences that are exciting and motivating for pupils, and to prepare them for life after school.

Pupil progress - Pupils achieve outstanding progress in all areas of their development as demonstrated through a portfolio of continuous assessments and reporting developed by staff and adapted to each pupil’s needs to demonstrate meaningful progress.
