Quotes from the Ofsted report
This highly effective school provides very good value for money because of the excellent leadership of the headteacher, high quality teaching and pupilsí very good achievements.
Provision for visually impaired pupils is very good
Induction arrangements are outstanding for the transfer of visually impaired pupils to local secondary schools.
Visually impaired pupils work alongside others doing the same challenging work, the only differences being that their worksheets are written in Braille and their computers talk to them to help them write on the screen.
