Mill Ford School is closed to all pupils from Wednesday 18 March Until Further Notice - see link below


On behalf of our children, staff and governors welcome to our Website. Mill Ford is a school with specialism in meeting the needs of children and young adults with complex needs, including severe and profound and multiple learning difficulties, complex medical needs and autistic spectrum conditions. As a Headteacher I am immensely proud to be leading an amazing team for whom our children and young people are the centre and reason for all we do. 

Mill Ford is a friendly, child-centered school where staff work tirelessly to provide each child and young person with an individual and exciting curriculum that builds on strengths and nurtures a love of learning.  We place a strong emphasis on ensuring our pupils aspire to be the best they can, are able to contribute to society, develop their communication and social skills, enjoy learning and have a strong sense of self. We ensure pupils can achieve these things independently in a nurturing environment, where they feel able to take risks.

Safeguarding children and young people is paramount in all we do, so that children and young people can learn and thrive in a safe environment.

I do hope that you enjoy our website and if you are interested in finding out more please contact us and ask to speak to myself or my deputy, Simon Payne.
