Ofsted Inspection – November 2018

We are delighted to announce that in our recent Ofsted Inspection we were judged to be a ‘good school’ with personal development, behaviour and welfare found to be outstanding!

The key finding of the report found:

Informed, ambitious and articulate leadership means that all staff understand the vision and ethos of the school. There is a strong sense of team spirit. Acorn Education and Care Group provides effective support and is ambitious for all pupils. The independent school standards are met in full.

This newly opened school has got off to a great start. In a short period of time, leaders have created a safe, nurturing and specialised environment where pupils get the support, help and care they need.

The positive relationships between staff and pupils are a key strength of the school. Staff know their pupils well. Through personalised plans, pupils make strong social and emotional progress from their starting points.

Good teaching helps to reignite pupils’ interest in education. Pupils say that learning is fun. Current pupils are making good progress towards realistic targets.

Pupils who previously missed a lot of school now attend regularly. In a short space of time, the school has had a remarkable impact on pupils’ attitudes and their behaviour.

Safeguarding procedures are effective. Staff are ‘tuned in’ to their pupils. They take swift action to report any concerns. Pupils say they feel safe at school.
