0 Comment

Weston Point College, a small independent school for students with significant social, emotional and behavioural needs has been judged as being a good school by Ofsted.

Weston Point’s first inspection in 2010 was also ‘good’ and Ofsted’s latest inspection confirms that Weston Point is one of the top schools serving young people with challenging behaviour in the North West.

The inspection by HMI Brian Blake praised the school’s Head Teacher and staff for their, “excellent working relationships with the students”. He noted that although many students arrived at Weston Point with very low levels of attainment, “the vast majority make up on lost ground so that by the end of y11, the gap in their performance against national averages has closed significantly”.

The highly positive report highlighted the overall quality of leadership and management as being a key to the success of the school. The Inspector noted the ‘shared vision’ and ‘high level of commitment between staff, Head teacher and the proprietors, ‘to make the school as good as it can possibly be’

Allen Baynes, one of the Directors said,” we set this school up to make a difference to the social and educational outcomes for some of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged young people in the North West and Ofsted have said that is what we have achieved, so we are delighted for our students and our excellent staff team.

Weston Point caters for students from Halton, Liverpool, Bolton and Cheshire East and has developed links with all the key agencies serving young people in the area.
