Ofsted Inspection 2017
Our latest Ofsted report in October 2017 confirmed that John Grant is an “Outstanding” School. Comments include…
“All staff work together to make sure that every pupil receives the best possible education.”
“Teaching is outstanding because teachers and co-educators (teaching assistants) work with pupils exceptionally well.”
“Pupils’ behaviour in lessons and around the school is outstanding. They treat each other, staff and visitors with care and respect”
“Pupils feel safe in the school. All staff manage some pupils’ very challenging behaviour exceptionally well”
“Children in early years make outstanding progress due to the excellent curriculum and consistent support they receive”
“Students in the 16-19 provision are exceptionally well prepared for the next stage in their education.”
“The school works exceptionally well with external agencies”
John Grant School caters for pupils with complex needs, including severe learning difficulties, Autistic Spectrum Disorder and profound and multiple learning difficulties. Our age range is from reception to 19 years of age.
