Meet the Team

Ellern Mede School’s highly qualified staff team provide SEN teaching and support of the highest standard, at a pace and level to suit students who are struggling with mainstream school, for whatever reason.

The teaching and support staff are committed to safeguarding the welfare of students. Teachers are able to focus individual attention on students and, given the smaller class sizes, offer greater support. We take a therapeutic approach, delivering education and excellent results for all our students. We recognise each student’s personal skills, aptitude and learning style. We build on these in order that they may return to their home school, or continue their education with us following their recovery, or with another establishment.

We are a dynamic educational team working together across multiple school sites. We work in partnership with the staff at Ellern Mede Services eating disorder hospitals to bring about real recovery in the lives of the students we serve.
