Mossbrook School provides education for children with Autism, Communication and Learning difficulties. All our children have an Education Health Care plan.
After careful assessment of their educational needs. children are placed at Mossbrook by Sheffield’s Children and Young People’s Directorate (SEND Department) The Special Educational Needs Code of Practice 2015 requires reports from Educational Psychologists and Medical Professionals to be considered as part of the assessment process. Parents must be involved and their views taken into account at every stage. Children join us at the start of their Reception year or are transferred from other special schools or mainstream schools at a later stage.
Whether your child has already been allocated a place at Mossbrook, or you are still considering where is best for your child, you are very welcome to visit so that you can see the school, meet the staff and discuss your child's needs. Appointments can be made by ringing the school office. We ask that you do not bring any children with you on your initial visit.
For further information of the process parents and carers need to follow if they want to apply for their child to attend Mossbrook School please contact the Local Authority Special Educational Needs section on 0114 273 6394.
If a place is agreed for your child, further visits are encouraged to discuss their child’s needs, arrangements for transport, school meals, medical information and other practical matters.
If your child is already at a setting or school, we will try to visit them there, and where appropriate we will organise for your child to visit Mossbrook as part of the transition process.
