Congratulations to the school for achieving the fourth renewal of the Basic Skills Quality Mark. Throughout my visit I met with senior leaders, a parent, pupils from across the school and subject leaders. Consistency of a shared vision, the knowledge of individual pupils' needs and how deaf pupils' learn and acquire skills, the setting and meeting of expectations for the pupils, professional development opportunities for staff, the teaching of the basic skills and the support for pupils and communication with parents are real strengths. The Head Teacher and leaders know the strengths and areas for development and can articulate the impact of recent initiatives. The Senior Leadership Team provide a very strong and supportive leadership, which ensures the school keeps the basic skills at the heart of all learning.
