We are pleased to announce that following our inspection in October 2017 Ofsted inspectors found us to be “Outstanding” in the overall experiences and progress of children and young people.


The Mulberry Bush School was judged as outstanding because:

  • The quality of individualised care and support provided is excellent and has a
    substantial impact on the progress and experiences of children.
  • Managers and staff work hard to develop admirable relationships with other
    professionals and families; where they are good staff work collaboratively to
    enhance the life chances of children, and where they are difficult staff seek to
    improve communication so that the focus is on children’s needs.
  • Children’s experiences of moving into the school and subsequently of leaving are
    extremely smooth as a result of meticulous transition planning, impact risk
    assessments, and admission and discharge processes.
  • Managers and staff have high aspirations for children and employ a wide range of
    resources within the school and outside to attain them. They demonstrate a
    constant drive to improve practice and develop services so as to improve
    outcomes for children.
