A school which looks after Norfolk's vulnerable and excluded children has been told its safeguarding is effective.
Ofsted visited the Short Stay School for Norfolk, which has nine bases, in March to examine the procedures, which inspectors later deemed to be effective.
The watchdog said procedures were 'consistently' applied, and records are maintained 'systematically'.
'Pupils benefit greatly from the one-to-one supervision and support provided for them,' they said. 'Those with very challenging behaviours are managed well by staff, who show endless patience, tolerance and understanding.'
They noted that attendance remained low, which provided a risk to protecting pupils, but that it was seen as a top priority for improvement.
