A PRIVATE special school in Bradford is performing at the required standards, Ofsted found following a recent inspection.

Broadbeck Learning Centre, based in Brearcliffe Drive, Buttershaw, charges annual fees of £75,690, and cares for ten children with special educational needs or disabilities.

During the inspection Ofsted found staff take their responsibility for safeguarding “very seriously”.

It said: “Pupils behave very well and have positive attitudes to learning.

“Staff have high expectations of what pupils can achieve, and the positive relationships between staff and pupils help them feel safe and relaxed, reducing anxiety.

“Pupils speak highly of their experiences and feel good about themselves and their futures.”
