Overall effectiveness Good

"With calm determination, the headteacher has built a persuasive vision for the school which staff and students have embraced. As a result, during their time at the school, students make good gains in their learning."; "Students join the school with a history of fragmented school attendance and very significant gaps in their academic learning and social development. Despite this, during their time at the Lioncare they achieve well and grow to value greatly what the school can offer."; "Students’ behaviour is good. Over time teachers and other adults work skilfully to help students rebuild their learning and self-esteem."; "Teachers and other adults are excellent role models. Their calm and consistent approach to their interactions with students ensures that students new to the Lioncare quickly improve their social skills and coping mechanisms."; "Teaching is not yet leading to outstanding achievement."
