Parents & Carers

At Manchester Young Lives Independent School, we value the relationship between school and parents/carers. Home and school life are closely linked for our young people, and any issues within one can deeply influence the other.

That is why we encourage your input and feedback for all aspects of school life. We hold regular review meetings to update you on your child’s progress, include you in the pre-admit process during a referral, and we constantly look for your comments, suggestions and feedback. Any issues or concerns you have, either for the personal or academic progress of any young person, will be noted and dealt with as effectively as possible.

Communication with parents/carers is key to encouraging and maintaining high standards in attendance and attainment for our students, and with your help we can ensure their success. So if you require any information or have any suggestions or comments, please get in touch here.

Ofsted Report

MYL are delighted to have gained a Grade 2 (Good) for overall effectiveness in our recent Ofsted Inspection (2018)

Inspectors said

” The school’s pastoral care for pupils is a significant reason why most pupils make the progress they should, both academically and behaviourally”.

“The designated safeguarding leader is highly trained and works well with partners to ensure that pupils’ welfare is given the highest priority across the school”.

“Pupils’ attainment by the end of Key Stage 4 , across all subjects, has improved significantly since the last inspection”. “Most pupils make good progress in Mathematics, English and Science”.
