Supporting Students

All staff at The MFG focus on supporting students to achieve their best and to thrive and develop academically and personally. Every student is different and brings their own strengths, talents and needs to their learning experience.  We treat every child individually and pride ourselves on the high quality, bespoke response we are able to offer to meet their needs.  Key teams in school are available to support students, offering individualised support, counselling, training programmes and support or advice as needed.

Students are offered help, and are encouraged to ask for help themselves, to: ensure they are able to make the most of their time in school; forge positive and enjoyable relationships with their peers; plan and organise around the timetabled week; get to class punctually with the equipment they need to learn; complete homework on time and to prepare well for tests, assessments and examinations.
