Welcome Message 

On behalf of the children, staff and governors I would like to welcome you to Mossbrook school.

Mossbrook is a maintained primary special school in Sheffield where staff have the knowledge and skills to meet the needs of pupils aged four to eleven years old. Our pupils have Autism and associated communication, learning and behavioural needs, although we are not a school for children whose primary needs are social, emotional and mental health.

Mossbrook is a Local Authority maintained primary special school which caters for 160 children between the ages of 4 and 11 who have Autism. All our pupils have a range of special educational needs. The school is located on two sites:

Main site

Bochum Parkway



Chancet site

Chancet Wood Drive

Meadow Head


S8 7TR

The telephone number for both sites is 01142 372768 and you can contact us by emailing Nicola Phipps at

The majority of our pupils travel to school on Sheffield City Council Transport. School begins at 8.45am and finishes at 3.05pm. On Wednesdays, school closes at 2.30pm to allow for staff training opportunities. Children are onsite for 30 hours and 55 minutes each week. There are currently fourteen class groups on our main site and three classes at Chancet Wood. This year, some of our youngest children are located at our Chancet site. Most classes educate between 8 and 14 children with one teacher, one level 3 Teaching Assistant, two level 1 Teaching Assistant’s and a dinner time Teaching Assistant.

Our pupils are not grouped according to their age but according to their ability and preferred learning styles. However, we try to ensure that there are no more than three year groups within each class.

As Headteacher, I feel privileged to be working with such wonderful children and with a team of staff who are caring, dedicated and highly skilled.

I hope that you find our website clear, informative and easy to navigate. If you would like a paper copy of any of the policies you find on our website, contact our school office and we will be happy to arrange this for you.

In addition, we warmly invite you to come and visit our school to find out more.
