At the beginning of the new academic year in September we welcomed 15 new pupils into Mayfield School. These were pupils whom we felt it would be unfair to start in a new mainstream school before moving to Mayfield once the build was complete.
There were 7 pupils in Early Years, 1 in Keystage 1, 6 in Year 7 and 1 in Year 10.
During the Autumn Term we also completed outreach work in mainstream schools where we had further pupils who were joining us in January 2019. This project of working with teachers and pupils in their current setting enabled us to assess abilities, initiate behaviour plans and generally get to know the pupils before the big move.
So, in January 2019 we welcomed a further 18 new pupils into our brand-new fantastic building alongside settling our own pupils. There were 2 in Early Years, 10 in Keystage 1 and 6 in Keystage 2.
They have all made new friends, spent time learning about their new school and had fun finding their way around the long corridors and many fabulous facilities.
