Quotes from the Ofsted report:

The overall effectiveness of the school is excellent. Standards are well above average.

The visually-impaired pupils are given very good support in the unit, and class teachers take care to include them in lesson activities. In the unit, pupils are taught essential skills such as touch typing, so that in lessons they can easily use their lap top computers for writing
