"It was so interesting to hear all about both your whole school approaches focussing on the behaviour policy, staff training and PSHE, as well as taking great care of your most vulnerable students through your wellbeing team approach and using the assets and resources available to you to very best effect. Hearing directly from parents and pupils gave us a profound opportunity to understand their lived experience, and how you as a school have been able to support them."
