Letter to Parents – Start of Term

Covid 19 – General Site Risk Assessment September 2021

Emergency, Out of Hours number: 07519 130641

Welcome

Arbour Vale School is a vibrant and welcoming special school where we aim to provide a caring, safe and happy environment for everyone. We believe that all children should be able to achieve their full potential irrespective of their personal learning needs. We offer an individualised curriculum and ensure all of our pupils enjoy positive educational experiences. At Arbour Vale we celebrate our pupils’ differences and ensure we have an inclusive school community.

In November 2018 we joined Orchard Hill College Academy Trust (OHCAT), which has a wealth of experience in Special Educational Needs & Disabilities. Through OHCAT we are able to share the very best practice and ensure all our pupils have access to a quality learning experience from Early Years through to age 25 and beyond.

We are very aware that good relationships between parents and Arbour Vale School are essential. Our learning community is enriched by both formal and informal opportunities to meet with staff, professional agencies and other parents/carers to ensure that we continue to work collaboratively and secure the best for our children. I encourage any prospective parent/carer to visit the school and see first-hand, the learning community we continue to build together.
