What The Good Schools Guide says..
The terraced outdoor learning zone, clinging on to the side of a small cliff, is a creative use of small piece of adjoining land. Steep steps lead from the playground to the naturally landscaped area, a peaceful oasis well designed for natural history and imaginative outdoor learning and activity. As you might expect no significant behaviour issues here; strong relationships between staff and pupils and positive behaviour policy.

Special Education Needs
We aim to be as inclusive as possible to a wide range of children, including those who are gifted (very able academically) and/or talented (for example, with particular musical flair). Our generous staff:pupil ratio allows for effective differentiation and targeted support in the classroom and our skilled practitioners use a wide range of techniques to sustain the learning and progress of each individual child. Currently, our main provision is for children with mild to moderate learning needs. A qualified Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator works with teachers to help them adjust their teaching and learning techniques to meet the needs of all pupils. Where appropriate, we work with families to develop Individual Education Plans. Those children who might benefit from specific intervention are withdrawn from some lessons for individual support from the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator.
