Our most recent Ofsted was in May 2018, and we were pleased with the result of this visit. Highlights for me include:

“You make sure that expectations are high. Lessons are about learning and trying your best. The learning environment is filled with positive prompts and messages to pupils.”

“You expect learning to be interesting, relevant and fun. As a result, pupils learn to apply their skills while doing practical activities that they enjoy.”

I believe, these quotes demonstrate our absolute commitment to ensuring all our pupils are able to access a high quality education, regardless of what has gone before.

Our vision remains strong; in the words of the poet Maya Angelou:  ‘My vision is not that you survive, but that you thrive with passion, compassion, humour and style’.

Students at SSPS did some fantastic work last week for Children’s Mental Health week – they designed their own t shirts and took part in some really positive work around mental health.


Middle Years pupils enjoyed a talk from Russ Wells, Personal Trainer & national quad bike rider about growing up with Cerebral Palsy and achieving your dream whilst living with disability. The students asked lots of questions about setting goals and being resilient. @Rusty_PT
