welcome to our school 

Welcome to the Ganton School website; our special school community is a vibrant and energetic collaboration between pupils, staff and families which embraces other community partners and seeks to improve outcomes for all those affected by learning difficulties and disabilities.

It is a place where everybody shines and, as Headteacher, I am delighted to be able to share with you information about our school, our pupils and our activities in the hope that you will celebrate, with us, the special achievements of our community members.

Ganton School is committed to safeguarding and protecting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

WANTED: Feedback on Mental Health Support Teams (MHST's) in school

We’re excited to invite you to give your feedback and opinion on the new Mental Health Support Team (MHST) service which is being delivered throughout Hull schools and colleges by the local NHS and Hull City Council. MHSTs are a new service which will deliver mental health support to pupils directly in schools and colleges though 1:1 sessions, group sessions and assemblies.

The MHSTs will compliment, not replace, existing mental health support that is available to schools and colleges. 

We would like you to complete a short survey to gather your views on Mental Health Support Teams in schools and appreciate your feedback. This should take no longer than 15 minutes. We hope you will use this opportunity to really help to shape the MHST service.
