Hello and Welcome to Mount Tamar School in Plymouth
Our school is maintained by Plymouth City Council for children who have an Educational, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) describing Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) and/or an Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC). We have children on roll from Y3-Y11.
We are a community of about 100 children and 100 staff over 5 sites in the Plymouth area. Our main Primary and Secondary School site is at Row Lane in Higher St Budeaux in the north of the city.
Please note our Drake Residential site has been closed since the beginning of the pandemic and we are not providing any residential provision at present.
The school provides a broad, balanced curriculum and is enhanced by our Forest School for Primary pupils and our craft/design and technology and farm sites for secondary pupils. We also use various external training providers to offer more specialised provision.
I am working closely with my colleague Mike O’Neill who is the interim Headteacher for the school. I am also working closely with the Interim Executive Board who are governing the school during its current development phase. I am delighted to have joined the school at such an exciting period in its development.

So today, as Pride Month 2022 comes to an end, we held a landmark first ever Pride Parade at school! The rain held off and allowed our LGBTQ+ community to express themselves in a truly joyful event. It was made even better by the support and positivity of staff and other students who chose to join in. Big shout out to Morrisons who donated the bunting Well done all!
