Booker Park School Inspire - Enable - Achieve

Booker Park School is a primary special school. It is a member of the Vale Federation of Special Schools, together with the secondary school Stocklake Park.

We look for all our young people to be successful learners enabling them to achieve in a caring and supportive environment.  Working together is at the heart of The Vale Federation and our relationship with parents, carers and all the many professionals is central to helping our young people succeed. Everyone works to make this happen from ensuring the facilities are clean to raising funds for new resources, from supporting personal care to teaching a young person to communicate, from ensuring they get to school to sharing their day on their return – we all have a part to play. Together we work to provide the best that we possibly can to support all their unique learning needs.

We are very proud of Booker Park, and you are very welcome to come and visit to see us in action.

Booker Park is a large primary special school of 235 pupils for children with a broad diversity of complex needs including Profound and Multiple, Severe and Moderate Learning Difficulties. Almost half of the pupils have an additional diagnosis of an autistic spectrum condition.

We are fortunate to have wonderful facilities, including two large halls, a computer room, a hydrotherapy pool, a soft play centre, a library, an observational mirror room, dark room and sensory theatre. We have lots of wonderful outdoor spaces, including our MUGA and outdoor learning spaces. The school has a number of minibuses including those with a tail lift to ensure our children can access the community for learning.  We also have a number of meeting and training rooms which provide a comfortable environment for parents to meet as well as being an excellent location for courses and workshops.

We strongly believe in the benefits of multi-professional working, and have on site speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, and physiotherapists, and a school nurse.
