Middlefield Residential School - Glasgow

I am thinking of sending my 11 year old son to Middlefield School in Glasgow. I am looking for parents of kids currently attending the school or were previously attending the school for some information about the school.

Hi - not sure if you are still looking for information but my child attended Middlefield for a few years. I can give you a brief summary of the school's background and profile if you are still around ?

Yes, I am still looking for information. I have been thinking of putting in a request for a place for August this year. I would be grateful for any information you can give me.

Thanks

Our child attends a different school now which we are very happy with.

Hi, Could you tell me your preferred school. I was thinking of putting my son i Middlefield but now get the impression that is not a good idea.

Thanks

Re: Middlefield Residential School - Glasgow

Hi - Well as we all know views on schools vary a lot. Some parents may love a certain school whilst others hate it so I think you are right to try to get as many opinions to consider as you possibly can. Have you googled to find HMIE reports? Have you been able to visit the school and quiz the staff about their approach and expectations for your son ? Our child is still primary age and I'm guessing you are looking for a secondary option? Has your Ed Psych been any help ? Is M school being suggested as a possibility for secondary ?

Re: Middlefield Residential School - Glasgow

I put a Placing Request in for this school last year which was turned down. I have however come across articles regarding a scandal at this school. Reports were made to the police regarding child abuse. This resulted in the Head Teacher and some staff get moved elsewhere. There is no indication of what happened after that. After I read this I decided against going to court to get a place at this school. My kid has limited communication so he will not be able to tell me what is happening. I also have not found out where these other teachers have been moved to because I believe they are still working with special needs kids,

Re: Middlefield Residential School - Glasgow

I don't know many of the details about that case as it was before our time. I hope you find somewhere else in Glasgow that suits your son's needs
