Our last Ofsted inspection in May 2016 confirmed that we were Outstanding for the third time. Below is from the June 2016 Ofsted report...
This school continues to be outstanding.
A sense of intense warmth and community pervades the school and parents and carers are eager to express the high
regard and affection that they feel towards leaders and staff. The number of staff employed at the school has increased
significantly over the last six years. A very high proportion of the staff have been in post for several years or more and
the turnover of staff is low. This is testament to the way in which leaders value the work of all adults. It also reflects
the commitment, pride and loyalty that staff feel towards the school.
Pupils have trusting and positive
relationships with adults and a busyness and enjoyment of learning is evident across all aspects of the three to 19
provision. The vast majority of pupils behave exceptionally well. They are polite, calm and respectful of one another.
The teaching continues to be outstanding and, as a result, the progress of the pupils in each key stage continues to
be strong. Since the previous inspection, you have opened The Croft bungalow, which provides opportunities for
the post-16 students to develop greater independence and confidence in daily living skills.
The award-winning school premises are maintained exceptionally well and used to their full
potential to support a broad range of learning experiences for pupils of all abilities.
Safeguarding is effective.
You model the highest possible expectations for all aspects of the pupilsí care and well-being and
ensure that arrangements for safeguarding are effective. You have sustained a culture in the school in
which the safety and welfare of the pupils and their families is of paramount importance to all.
