Our Primary Department is co-located with Lancasterian Primary School – children are taught by specailist teachers in small class groups with other children with similar needs, with appropriate inclusion opportunities.
All pupils have individual needs and pupil support plans (PSPs) are formulated in consultation with parents, to set targets and devise strategies tailored to the individual pupil. Parental involvement is actively sought and facilitated through formal channels such as the PSP process, and less formally via coffee mornings and open days where parents can observe the work of the department.
All the Vale pupils are involved in life at Lancasterian Primary School. Break times, meals and assemblies are shared. The extent of inclusion is determined by staff in consultation with parents.
