    Our staff team is supported in their work by expert advice, training and input from the therapy team which includes Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists and Clinical Psychologist. Each week a Music Therapist from the Ealing Music Therapy Project visits the school to work with individuals and small groups of pupils.

    Mandeville has two full time school nurses and two health care assistants, who look after the care and medical needs of all pupils. Each class team has at least one member of staff trained within paediatric first aid and we have a number of staff also trained in First Aid at Work. Some pupils have a one to one Health Care Assistant to support their medical needs in the classroom. 


    Education Social Worker

    Mandeville School has a full time Social Worker based at the school.

    Looking after a child with a severe disability can put a lot of strain on families. The Social Worker is able to offer advice and support on a range of issues including welfare benefits, housing problems and respite care. The Social Worker also has a duty to monitor pupils’ attendance and will discuss with parents any concerns regarding attendance.

    The School Business Manager, Bursar and Administrator attend to the administration and business management aspects of the school. Our Site and Premises Manager, the Assistant Caretaker and a team of cleaners ensure the building is safe and well maintained.
