Mayfield is an all age special school, providing education for up to 310 pupils aged between 3 – 19, who have Moderate Learning Difficulties (MLD), Severe Learning Difficulties (SLD), Autism (ASC) and Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties (PMLD). Many of our pupils have additional needs and complex needs.   

We are proud to be part of the Education Impact Academy Trust where ‘Better never ends‘ 

All pupils at our school have an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP).  

We recognise that our young people have a variety of complex special needs and we provide effective support by planning and implementing personalised interventions in order to assist each pupil to achieve their full potential. The teaching methods and strategies we use aim to address our pupils’ individual needs, promote challenge for all abilities and ensure both personal development and academic progress.

We are a Silver UNICEF Rights Respecting School. The Rights Respecting School Award puts children’s rights at the heart of schools in the UK. We are currently on our journey to achieve our gold award.

We aim to be a safe and joyful place to learn, where children are respected, their talents are discovered and nurtured and they are able to thrive and develop.

The Rights Respecting Schools Award embeds these values in daily school life at Mayfield School and gives children the best chance to lead happy, healthy lives and to be responsible, active citizens.

Article 23: Children with a disability – A child with a disability has the right to live a full and decent life with dignity and independence, and to play an active part in the community.
