Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school School leaders have quickly and effectively addressed the weaknesses that previously existed in the school. Together, they are creating a school that improves pupils' lives. The welfare and personal development of pupils is, rightly, the focus of the school.

The strong curriculum for this aspect of pupils' development ensures that many are able to return to mainstream schools. Teaching is good because staff enable pupils to make strong progress in their social and emotional development, which supports swift reintegration into mainstream for many. Each pupil has a history of poor attendance and many were at risk of permanent exclusion in their prev...ious schools.

Almost all pupils significantly improve their attendance while placed at Eaglewood. The newly formed governing body has a clear understanding of the school's strengths and weaknesses. Governors have clearly defined roles that enable them, as a group, to have effective oversight of the school's work.

The support for pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) ensures effective identification of their needs and the use of successful interventions. The teaching of basic skills, particularly reading, is not yet ensuring that all pupils swiftly develop the skills they need for long-term success. Although the multi-academy trust (MAT) has supported the school, trustees do not have sufficient oversight of its performance.

Information about this school

Eaglewood opened in September 2016. It is an alternative provision free school for pupils who have a history of poor or irregular attendance. The school is a member of The Gryphon Trust, a multi-academy trust (MAT) which includes one other school.

The chair of the local governing body is a trust board member and represents the school in the MAT. The MAT has provided a range of support to the school, including the support of an independent school improvement adviser. Pupils join the school throughout the academic year, usually following a period of significant disruption to their education as a result of non-attendance or exclusion.

While at the school, pupils remain on the rolls of their previous mainstream schools. Eaglewood does not have any pupils placed with alternative providers. There is no data for the outcomes achieved by Year 11 pupils at Eaglewood in the Department for Education's performance tables.
