SEND at Orchard Vale
Here at Orchard Vale we aspire to create a school community where everyone feels a sense of belonging and worth. We recognise that our pupils learn at different rates and that there are many factors affecting achievement, including ability, emotional state, age and maturity.
No matter what our pupil’s needs or abilities are, we believe inclusion is about equal opportunities. We as a school endeavour to remove the barriers of learning for the children in our care and help them to reach their full potential.
From special educational needs, impairments, to children whose first language is not English, we promote the growth of their development through our staffing policies, relationships with parents/carers, topic based curriculum and resources throughout the school.
Our school is equipped with a fully functional lift that goes to all floors of the school building, wide halls and spacious classrooms allowing room for equipment such as wheelchairs and walking frames, 2 disabled toilets located in easily accessible places and a large reception area with security door to give straightforward access to the building.
If you have concerns then please speak to your child's class teacher. If you would like to liaise with the SENDCO please email firstname.lastname@example.org FAO Mrs Day.

At Orchard Vale we offer a broad and varied curriculum that regardless of academic ability or background that supports all children in their learning journey to accomplish tasks and reach goals.
We believe that our curriculum design is best taught through a topic based approach. We allow our pupils to immerse themselves in the stimulating topic choices while taking into consideration the individual learning needs to each and every child.
