On behalf of the staff, students and governors of Mary Elliot School, I would like to welcome you to the school and encourage you to browse through our website. I hope that in doing this you will capture the ethos of the school and what we are striving to achieve.
Our Shared Aims

To provide access to a broad balanced student-centred curriculum which is relevant to the needs of every student and which prepares them for their future life by developing the skills and abilities essential to independent adult living, acknowledging for many, the sheltered nature this may imply.
To promote a safe, caring and stimulating environment that gives positive encouragement to all, and recognises and values the contributions of all it’s members.
To encourage the development of self-confidence, self respect, responsibility and self reliance, together with an awareness of and sensitivity to the needs of others.
These aims are best achieved through a close working partnership between home and school. I hope this prospectus is the beginning of such a partnership and helps you to gain some insight into our school.

Kind regards,

Mr Adrian Coleman
Head Teacher
