January 2018 – Avalon School was a Good School. Ofsted said:
- Staff have created a warm and welcoming school where pupils enjoy their school experience. The dedication of your team was summed up articulately in the following comments made by parents: ‘Avalon has been amazing for my child’ and ‘We feel part of the Avalon family, our child is well supported and is making brilliant progress.’
- Pupils, irrespective of their special educational needs, disability or background, make good progress as they move through the school. This is because of good teaching, with some excellent practice. Teachers and support staff know their pupils well. Combined with strong subject knowledge, teachers plan interesting and stimulating work which motivates and engages pupils. As a result, pupils demonstrate positive attitudes to their learning and enjoy the activities they undertake. Pupils describe how they are confident ‘learning is adapted to meet our needs’ and that they have the right resources in place to help them.
