1. What type of school are you, what special educational needs do you cater for and are there eligibility criteria?
Valentine Primary School is a mainstream setting that educates children from the age of 4 to 11. We welcome children of all abilities and needs. Admission of children with Education and Health Care (EHC) plans is supported by the Local Authority in consultation with the school and parents/carers/carer.
We firmly believe in Inclusion and that all children should be given every opportunity to thrive in our mainstream setting. We benefit from the expertise of our Special Needs Coordinators (SENCO), Mrs Jackie Hurden and Mrs Anna Powell. The Learning Support Assistants (those who work 1:1 with children) report to Jackie and Anna.
