Booker Park School

null
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, and its post-16 site Harding House.

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.

The school is organised into three departments. There is a department which caters for Early Years pupils with a range of needs, and primary aged pupils with profound and multiple learning difficulties, and pupils with low functioning autism and sensory processing difficulties. There is another department for pupils from Year 1 to Year 6 who experience behaviour, emotional and social difficulties, and/or high functioning autism. The third department caters for pupils from Year 1 to Year 6 who have a range of learning difficulties from moderate to severe. Approximately a third of the pupils have an additional diagnosis of autism.

We are fortunate to have wonderful facilities, including a hydrotherapy pool, a soft play room, a library, a family room, an observational mirror room, and a training room. We strongly believe in the benefits of multi-professional working, and have on site speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, and physiotherapists.
