Headteacher Welcome

This is a wonderful school, and I would like to thank you for taking the time to find out about Mayfield School.

I am extremely proud to be the Headteacher of this outstanding school, and to work with such a fantastic staff team and wonderful pupils.

Mayfield Special School is a unique place where our young people are nurtured, cared for and educated to the highest standards.

We have a highly dedicated and extremely talented staff team and we work in partnership with a wide network of professionals to support our pupils and ensure they receive the highest quality provision and care.

We work to ensure our pupils learn and develop in a happy, safe and supportive environment.  Our pupil’s well-being and their happiness is at the heart of everything we do. We support our pupils to reach their true potential. We are a strong and supportive community, where everyone is thinking and everyone is learning.

The aims of our school are for all young people to be safe, happy and enjoy learning.  Specifically, we aim for our pupils to be:

  • Effective communicators
  • Independent learners
  • Prepared for life after school
  • Creative, adaptable and able to manage change

A strong partnership between school and home is of the utmost importance to us. We welcome you to visit our school to see first-hand how special it is.  There are many occasions throughout the year when the success and achievements of our young people are celebrated, and we hope you will be able to attend, these are special occasions that are treasured by pupils, parents and carers and staff.

The happiness of your child and yourself is of paramount importance to me and please do not hesitate to contact any staff member or myself if you have any concerns, queries or questions.

I look forward to a long and fruitful partnership with you, working together for your child.
