The inspection team reviewed all areas of our work and found that:
"Pupils and school staff build positive, trusting relationships. Pupils feel safe. They are treated with kindness, dignity and respect and reflect this in how they behave towards staff."
"Leaders place a high priority on the teaching of reading. Younger pupils read books that let them practise the sounds that they know and have been taught. This helps them read with accuracy and understanding. Any pupils who struggle with reading are expertly taught by knowledgeable staff."
"School staff work closely with medical staff to ensure that the education provided supports pupils’ recovery. Staff are highly ambitious for pupils. They challenge pupils to fulfil their potential."
"School staff work closely with other professionals in the hospitals to construct individual programmes which support each pupil’s personal development. There is a strong focus on developing relationships and helping pupils look after their mental health. This builds pupils’ resilience, independence and social and emotional development. This is a notable strength."
"Safeguarding is at the centre of staff’s work with pupils. Staff are well trained. They are highly alert to the signs of risk and vulnerabilities of pupils. Concerns are acted upon appropriately and quickly."
