“A noticeable strength is the strong relationships developed between staff and pupils and the expert way staff manage complex needs and behaviours of pupils. Staff use their skills and strategies to help pupils get ready for learning as soon as they enter class. Any pupil starting to have a difficult time is identified immediately, then quickly supported to help them get back to work. Consequently, lessons are calm and purposeful and pupils respond willingly to the high expectations which adults have of them” Ofsted  


The uniqueness of the pupils they support is celebrated and the wide range of intervention and provision aims to create confident, happy learners who thrive in an environment where they are safe, cared for and valued.” IQM Inspector
