Mary Eliot Special School in Walsall is a special school for students aged 11-19 with severe and profound complex learning difficulties.

Local MEP, Anthea McIntyre, visited the school after accepting an invitation from Clive Ault, Vice-Chairman of the School Governors, to meet staff, school governors and the pupils and to see the state of the art premises which offer educational accommodation which is second to none.

“It was a real pleasure to meet the school’s inspirational headteacher, Liz Jordan, many members of the staff and, most importantly, the students.

“One aspect of the school that really stood out for me was the school lunches.  Mary Eliot School have a proper, fully-functioning, kitchen that takes in fresh ingredients and turns them into absolutely wonderful meals.

“Not only does this allow the kitchen staff to produce really delicious meals of excellent quality that the students actually want to eat but it also allows the school to cope with often complex dietary requirements without waste – a truly remarkable achievement.

“It is obvious that Mary Eliot Special School is  a very special place and I am so pleased to have been able to see it for myself.”
