I was undiagnosed Autistic and abused at home. I told the school that and they did nothing. They said only if they see “marks”.
The school also didn’t pick up I have special educational needs and put me in supervision everyday. If you don’t know what supervision is it’s basically like isolated prison. You eat alone, work alone with no help or teachers. Education totally gone through the window.
I’m now diagnosed with autism and adhd, but because I’m past school years I have to pay for education when I should have got it as a kid for free as my right.
My friend got hit round the face by a teacher and all the teachers covered it up.
No safeguarding in this school and no help for vulnerable students. Good luck is all I’ll say if you are unfortunate enough as me to be sent here!
As a student, I think it is safe to say that there are many faults with this school, many being the fact that they care about your shoes more than they do bullying or your mental and physical well being. I find that the PE Teacher wears stupidly short shorts but tells the girls off for inappropriate uniform is extremely hypocritical. There are a select few PSOs that make the school feel like a safe place, others would rather be anywhere else then in that school. As for the teachers, alot of them are okay. Some are really nice and would go to any length to educate you, others just aren't meant to be teachers. I feel like the teachers of specific subjects force you to like it, you can't tell them otherwise.
As a former student of this school, I personally had a bad experience. The staff didn't help people properly, especially when it came to mental health. The teachers aren't too bad at their job, but there are quite a few that show obvious favouritism towards students. Not to mention the fact that the staff cares more about the girls skirt lengths than peoples grades. As for the students, they aren't good at all. There's loads of bullying, especially towards LGBTQ+ students and students with mental disorders, and the staff do nothing to punish them whatsoever. If anything, they punish the victim by moving them to a seperate building to learn, or just making the victim switch classes, which causes more hassle than necessary. The school is an unsafe environment because of these students, as there were multiple cases of students getting injured by other students, and once again, the teachers don't do anything about it. Their methods of "punishment" is completely ineffective, the bullies get spoken to ONE TIME and get away with a slap on the wrist, and once again, the victim potentially gets switched classes.
I would not recommend going to this school if you have previous experiences with bullying, bad mental health, and you actually want to learn properly and feel safe at school.
No masks are required, The teachers rarely wear their face covering and we have year group zones but it all goes to hell because of siblings. Nothing has changed except you need to help it on hand sanitiser at the start of every lesson.
School Safeguarding system is terrible, ELSA's are terrible and dont punnish alot. Some teachers are ok, could be much better. Most of the teachers need to relax, their too tough, and some have no toughness, they need to find that happy median.
