Isobel Mair School
Isobel Mair School has a holistic approach to the education of pupils aged 5 -18 years who have a very wide range of difficulties. Meeting the needs of pupils with complex learning difficulties demands a high degree of structure and staff expertise.
All staff are suitably qualified in the education of pupils with severe/complex learning difficulties and additional Communication and Language Disorders. Staff are involved in the educational process which is always self-questioning. There is an openness and trust where self-questioning is seen as constructive.
Staff are encouraged to share values, direction and responsibility for the benefit of the pupils / school. Educational provision is seen as partnership with parents, pupils, specialists and other professionals. We strive to seek to celebrate success at all levels and to ensure the dignity and respect of all stakeholders.

Staff in Isobel Mair School are aiming to support pupils in being as independent as possible and therefore request that parents dress their children in clothes which allow for ease of movement and enable pupils to help with dressing where appropriate.
The school has a school uniform which consists of a sweatshirt, polo shirt and zipped fleece, in the school colours (Jade, Navy/Black) and bearing the school logo. School Uniform may be ordered at a very reasonable cost from the school office. Orders will normally be made just after the Easter Break in readiness for the new school session. It may be possible to supply other items from existing stock but it should be noted that we do not keep a large supply.
