Our most recent section 5 Ofsted report (July 2017) states that:
Teachers encourage pupils to show independence and to take responsibility for their own behaviour. Relationships are very positive. This helps to ensure that pupils rightly feel well supported when faced with completing challenging work. Teachers are skilled and know their pupils exceptionally well.
