School sites

Our school is situated on four mainstream school sites, allowing the benefit of best practices of a special school and supported opportunities, experiences and challenges of mainstream provision. In order to meet the range needs most effectively, the provision we offer is also varied, for example:

- a child who is able to access a mainstream curriculum with the addition of specific support may attend our Vale Inclusion Scheme - at Belmont Infant and Belmont Junior School – they would spend the majority of time in their mainstream class

- a child with complex needs may attend the Primary Department  co-located with Lancasterian Primary School – they would have small group teaching with other children with similar needs, with appropriate inclusion opportunities.

-a secondary aged student will attend our Secondary Department which is co-located with Northumberland Park Community School , they would have a programme tailored to their individual needs, ranging from specialist teaching to full mainstream inclusion.
