Activities and trips

How we include children/young people in activities and school trips


- We are proactive in looking for opportunities for children to access any activities at school or within the community which enhance their learning, independence or well -being.

- All children are fully included in a wide range of school trips (including those of its partnership schools) through careful planning, risk assessments, additional support and the use of adapted transport.

- Children have regular lessons within the local area to develop their life skills. These may include, for example learning how to use money through visits to local shops.

- Children have opportunities to go on residential trips or specific day trips supported by Vale staff with input from the therapy teams. Parents are closely involved in preparation of these trips attending planning meetings and individual consultations to discuss the specific needs of their child.
