Professional feedback:


Thank you for the excellent organisation and the effort that you put in to make sure the session runs smoothly. It is hugely helpful that you know the students and their families so well. We really do appreciate the hard work that goes into each visit.  


It was noticeable that all the students were happy to have the vaccines, nobody was anxious or distressed and I’m sure this is down to the preparation work that you do with them.


The atmosphere in school is warm and welcoming, the staff all say good morning. It is always a pleasure to visit.

Pupils were welcoming and happy to share their experience. 

It was amazing to see the students across school engaging in learning and to able to hear the students talk about the school and the activities. 

It was a delight to be at your fantastic school.  I was very impressed by the way pupils are at the heart of the school and their voices are highly valued. 

Very calming environment, which is mirrored by the environment and the staff. 

All students were so friendly and welcoming.  Impeccable manners which is something which is not seen amongst most secondary schools! 

‘I have observed some really positive input from Lighthouse school in supporting a student back to school following the pandemic. A student presented several challenges in addition to his anxiety and ritualised behaviour. I observed an exceptional caring attitude towards this student that demonstrated a real desire to improve things and create opportunities for him. Through discussion, I was able to see that staff had the skills to not only work with other agencies and recognise and develop advice and recommendations given to them but to also generate outside of the box ideas and learn and develop through experience and reflection. From my perspective this had made a very positive difference and has influenced his levels of anxiety, ritualised behaviour and increased his enjoyment and engagement with school.’
