Quotes from the Ofsted report
This is a very good school with many strong features.
Current provision for pupils with special educational needs, including those with visual impairment, is good, but management structures and staffing levels are not strong enough to sustain this position.
The emphasis is on participation by all pupils and take-up is very high. It includes many high attaining pupils, many lower attainers, and successfully integrates sighted and visually impaired pupils.
The area of special educational needs concerned with visual impairment provides very effective mainstream schooling for 14 pupils, but it is housed separately and to a large extent is separately managed.
