Information about the school

The Specialist Teaching and Learning Services team, employed by Valence School, provides a service for children and young people (0 - 19 years) with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). We also offer advice and training for pre-schools, mainstream schools and academies on how to meet the needs of children with SEND. The STLS Sensory Service team delivers sensory support across the county and operates from 14 different bases.

Our specialist teachers are experienced teachers with a qualification in one or more areas of SEND. They work alongside other professionals in providing effective and co-ordinated support. Our aim as a team is that children and young people with Special Educational Needs can have their learning, physical, social and emotional needs met, so that they can be fully included at school and make good educational progress.

Our School and all its personnel are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of the children. This post is subject to an Enhanced Disclosure Application to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
