Our 2018 OFSTED inspection judged our overall effectiveness as ‘Good’, with outstanding Teaching and Learning, Outcomes and Personal Development.

Some key findings:

  • The quality of teaching, learning and assessment is exceptional.  Pupils make excellent progress in developing their social and academic skills.  They are very well prepared for their next stage of learning.
  • The school is a happy place.  Relationships between staff and parents are very strong, pupils personal development is excellent.  Staff help pupils to manage their anxieties and behaviour.
  • The dedicated team of senior leaders has worked tirelessly to make sure that pupils make outstanding progress.

“One of the reasons the curriculum is so effective is that it provides pupils with real-life experiences. Pupils make rapid progress in achieving their ‘daily living skills’ targets.”

  • Occupational therapists play a vital role in helping pupils to reinforce communication skills.
