Some key findings
The academic curriculum is combined with targeted therapeutic support to ensure that pupils make dramatic progress in their social and emotional development.
School leaders have very high expectations of pupils and staff. They lead by example and have created a culture of respect and tolerance.
Pupils make huge gains in confidence and self-belief. The strong focus on building trusting and respectful relationships lies at the heart of the school’s success.
Pupils’ personal development and welfare are outstanding. There is a sustained and impressive improvement in pupils’ behaviour and ability to socialise.
Pupils gain a variety of skills and qualifications which allow them to progress to further education, training or employment.
Each pupil has a tailor-made programme linked to their age, needs and gaps in learning. As a result, pupils make good progress.
