Ofsted report

We strive to achieve an exceptional teaching and learning environment where our pupils are able to achieve their personalised goals.

Elmbank Learning Centre Ofsted Report east

Leaders make sure that they have detailed knowledge of the pupils when they start school. This information is used very well to plan for pupils’ individual needs. The Witherslack clinical team, consisting of a mental health practitioner, speech and
language therapist and an occupational therapist, support the staff and pupils well.

Pupils have access to a wide range of enrichment activities. These are often based on pupils’ interests and include horse riding, scuba diving, orienteering, rock climbing and
bouldering. Such opportunities promote pupils’ self-confidence and develop their understanding of how to interact in different situations. Leaders plan to continue to provide these activities in key stage 5.

Leaders have an insightful understanding of the complex needs of the pupils. They say that the development of self-esteem, self-confidence and resilience is key to pupils’ success in life. The personal, social, health and economics education (PSHE) curriculum is based on materials from an external organisation. It covers a wide range of themes to nurture these characteristics.

Pupils show their initiative through planning events such as ‘dress-down day’ for Children in Need and taking part in the Macmillan coffee morning. One pupil has raised £200 for retired police dogs by walking up Scafell Pike.
