Ofsted reports on RNIB Sunshine House School

We are proud of the work that we do, but it’s great when others recognise our achievements.

Our special school achieved "Outstanding" following a full inspection in January 2019, the highest rating given.

Ofsted had lots of great things to say. We’ve highlighted some of them for you here.

An "outstanding" school

Our outstanding rating from Ofsted means that "we are highly effective in delivering outcomes that provide exceptionally well for all our pupils' needs”. 

Ofsted praised the way that our “pupils make outstanding progress in academic achievement, in personal skills and in physical development” adding that our “teaching is outstanding.”

Our report also highlights that:

  • “Partnerships with other institutions, such as the [Eden] academy trust, are extremely effective. They bring added expertise to the school and provide pupils with a much wider mix of experiences.”
  • “The range of subjects, therapy and specialised methods of interaction are very well matched to pupils’ needs. Communication in various forms is emphasised in all activities, supported by an extremely high level of individual tuition and support.”
