Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. Teaching, throughout the school, is highly effective in meeting the wide range of individual needs of its students. Teachers use their specialist skills, such as in signing and the use of symbols, very successfully in their efforts to provide the very best they can for their students.

Students make exceptional progress in improving their ability to communicate and become much more independent. They achieve very well in a range of subjects, especially in the arts. Those with the capacity to read make very good progress.

The sixth form is outstanding. Students in the sixth form achieve very well, benefiting greatly from their move ...this term into the main school building. The school recognises, though, that there is still scope to develop this further to provide older students with a wider range of learning experiences.

Students thoroughly enjoy being in school and show excellent attitudes to learning. Their excellent behaviour in and out of lessons helps to ensure that the school is a very safe environment. The school is led by an inspirational executive headteacher who, together with other senior staff and the governing body, strive to ensure that the school is a centre of excellence.

This is ensuring that teaching and learning is of the very highest standards. The highly developed skills of staff working in the multi-sensory impairment unit and the very effective activities offered have a profoundly positive impact on the lives of the students it supports. The school is an integral part of the local community and parents are very positive about the support it provides for their children.
