First Ofsted for The Eaves Learning Centre
Pupils and staff from The Eaves Learning Centre are celebrating following the publication of their first Ofsted report since opening.
Opened in early 2021 and located in the South West of England, the integrated therapeutic learning centre provides a small group of young people with the perfect back-drop to release their full potential.
Being judged as good in all areas, the report considered the quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, personal development and leadership and management.
The report noted:
- Pupils receive a bespoke curriculum combining academic and therapeutic support. This coordinated approach ensures that the curriculum meets pupils’ individual needs effectively.
- Adults help pupils to develop their social interactions. Pupils enjoy learning outdoors. They learn how to cooperate and work in a team.
- Developing pupils’ communication, language and reading sits at the heart of the school’s curriculum. This ensures that pupils have secure foundations for future study.
- Staff are keen to support pupils’ development in every way they can.
- The school’s extra-curricular offer is considerable. Pupils enjoy museum and farm trips, cookery and visits in the local community. The curriculum is building most pupils’ resilience and independence well.
Head Teacher, Colin Cattanach, reflecting on the Ofsted Inspection stated:
"We are all delighted that Ofsted recognised the achievements of pupils and staff at the Learning Centre. As a relatively new provision, we are delighted with our progress and we look forward to the future with a clear ambition to build on this good inspection and achieve even more success for our young people."
