What do our Parents/Carers of pupils with SEN at MPET say about our SEN provision?

85% of parents/carers with a child who has SEND agree (71% strongly agree) that the school gives them the support they need to succeed. Ofsted parent view December 2022

“Staff show kindness and patience in offering the children the attention they need and the parents the support necessary to help them understand how to help their children.” Parent, April 2022

“You are inclusive, forward thinking, reasonably diverse, innovative and thorough. I am so happy my child attends MP and so grateful they are treated with respect and valued as an individual. I think you are all doing a great job and have created a happy and inclusive culture.” Parent, April 2022

“Staff are calm and helpful.” Parent, April 2022

“Staff recognise that the child isn’t ‘naughty’ or ‘bad’ and that they have potential, skills and a good heart. Staff are good at directing and trying to help with problems.” Parent, April 2022
