  • This is a good school
  • Leaders and directors have ensured that the independent school standards (ISS) continue to be met. A good standard of education has been sustained.
  • Pupils benefit from high-quality therapies offered by specialists and teaching staff. As a result, pupils are able to manage their own behaviours well. The vast majority of pupils attend well.
  • Staff foster exceptionally strong relationships with pupils. Pupils trust the staff they work with to support them in their academic, personal and social development.
  • Directors have invested in both increasing staffing levels and improving the premises. They have a detailed understanding of the school’s strengths and areas for improvement and use resources appropriately. They recognise the need to strengthen record- keeping to reflect the good practice and to improve systems and procedures.
  • Leaders ensure that staff are kept up to date by providing training, including that related to safeguarding. Clear and open communication channels mean that school leaders are able to involve agencies in good time when needed.
  • Teaching staff make good use of pupils’ education, health and care (EHC) plans when planning learning. As a result, pupils make good progress, particularly in their personal and social development. Occasionally, learning is not planned as precisely as it should be.
  • Leaders use school visits and off-site activities to enhance pupils’ experiences. Pupils talk eloquently and enthusiastically about their learning following a visit.
  • Pupils make strong progress in reading. This is the result of a well-thought-through strategy for teaching phonics and building pupils’ reading skills. Leaders recognise there is more to do to ensure that pupils make the same rate of progress in their writing or when they attend alternative provision.
  • Staff ensure that older pupils receive the high- quality careers advice and guidance they need in order to continue to further education or training.
  • Leaders have implemented the addition of key stage 2 to the school successfully since the previous standard inspection.
