A SPECIALIST school has received a positive report from Ofsted.

The Spires School, a specialist Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) education provision based in Salisbury, has been rated ‘Good’ with ‘Outstanding’ features in a recent inspection.

Offering education for pupils aged six to 18 years, the school has been praised in the report for its “carefully structured educational and therapeutic support and for recognising the importance of empathy and kindness”.

The inspector commended the school's dynamic and personalised curriculum.

The report said: “Pupils develop their interests such as horse-riding, gardening and climbing. They learn to be resilient, resourceful, independent learners through the curriculum. The curriculum offers a breadth of exciting, stimulating and culturally rich opportunities such as visiting the theatre and historical sites. Pupils thrive in this learning environment.”

I'd like to personally thank both staff and pupils, not just for their hard work during the inspection, but for their commitment throughout every school day of the year.

“The pupils at The Spires are incredible and they deserve nothing but the best.”
