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 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.

We have recently joined the Orchard Hill Academy trust (OHCAT) who have a wealth of experience in Special Education Needs & Disabilities. We are able through the Trust to share the very best practice and ensure all our learners 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.
