"From a very low base, pupils make good progress in English and mathematics and achieve well in practical subjects.
Pupils, who join the school with social emotional and mental health difficulties, make good progress in developing self-esteem and self-confidence. This leads to improved behaviour for learning and good academic progress.
Teaching and learning, supported by the school’s own assessment framework, enable pupils to make good progress in academic and personal development.
Leaders and managers demonstrate high expectations for all pupils and are successful in leading the school to meet its challenging aims.
Pupils who typically had poor attendance, poor motivation and engaged in low-level disruption in the classroom are showing significant improvement in their behaviour for learning. "
