Welcome to our school!

I would like to welcome you to Vale of Evesham School. We are situated in the town of Evesham on a campus with a Nursery school, First school, Middle school and High school.

The school is also a member of Advance Trust, a group of four special schools, who work collaboratively and share expertise to improve opportunities and life chances for all our young people.

We are a Specialist School for Cognition and Learning and work with parents/carers, schools and other agencies in our community to share practice.

Vale of Evesham is an all age generic special school with weekly residential provision taking pupils from the age of 2-19 years.

The school was last inspected by OFSTED in June 2016 and we were judged to be "Outstanding". Our Residential provision is inspected annually and has also been judged to be ‘Outstanding’.

We strive to provide an inclusive, holistic provision that ensures the security and care for every child, thereby enabling them to reach their full potential in an encouraging and supportive environment. As such we are the ‘Local Offer’ for South Worcestershire.

The pupils play a key part in their learning. When asked about what they liked best about school, the answers ranged from ‘prizes at the end of the day’ to ‘I have friends and people look out for you here’. They also thought that ’computers and Numicon’ helped them learn best.

Our staff are highly skilled and creative in ensuring all pupils have a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum. Pupils have stated ‘I like to work and the lessons are interesting and fun’ and ’the teachers always help you.’

I know you will enjoy looking through our website and learning more about the school. If it inspires you to ask more questions do not hesitate to get in touch or arrange a visit.
