This is a good school.

Class staff teams work extremely well together. Staff check on pupils' progress very carefully to identify and give extra help to anyone who is not doing as well as they should. The leaders check on teaching rigorously.

They give excellent support to new teachers and those who need to improve. Behaviour and safety are outstanding. Classes are calm and quiet and pupils usually have excellent attitudes to learning.

The staff manage pupils' behaviour very well. Pupils enjoy school and say they ...feel safe. The sixth form is good.

It prepares students well for life after school. The school is well led and managed. Staff and governors are keen to improve the school and are working well to do so.

Members of the governing body are frequent visitors. They have an accurate view of the school's strengths and weaknesses, the quality of teaching and how well pupils are doing. The new premises are outstanding.

Senior leaders have used the move as an opportunity to improve and develop most aspects of the school's work. Pupils are very well supported by the specialist, medical and therapy teams. The school cherishes each pupil and celebrates their successes.

Parents and carers are very happy with the school. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Not enough teaching is outstanding, and a small amount needs to improve. Not enough pupils make exceptional progress.

Information about this school

Green Park School provides for pupils with severe, profound and complex learning difficulties. About one quarter of the pupils have autistic spectrum disorder or similar difficulties, and a third have significant physical disabilities.

A number of pupils have multi-sensory impairment. All pupils have statements of special educational needs. Around one third of the pupils are girls, and two thirds are boys.

Just over half of the pupils are from White British backgrounds. The rest of the pupils come from 13 minority ethnic heritages. Half of these pupils come from families who speak English as an additional language.

About one third of the pupils are eligible for the pupil premium, which is an additional sum of money provided by the government to support looked after children, those eligible for free school meals and those from Forces families. This is about twice the national average. The school has an outreach service which provides support for children with multi-sensory impairment, and training for staff in other establishments.

Most of their work is carried out within Green Park School. The school moved into newly-built premises in February 2011. It is linked to community facilities and a primary school.

The two schools share some common areas. The school is organised into five clusters of three classes. Each cluster caters for pupils within an age range.

Pupils are placed in the classes according to their particular learning needs. These are broadly profound and multiple learning difficulties, autistic spectrum disorder and severe learning difficulties. There are 10 children in the Early Years Foundation Stage who are taught in the cluster which includes the youngest pupils in Key Stages 1 and 2.
