Stocklake Park School - Inspire Enable Achieve

null
Stocklake Park is our special school for secondary ages, including post 16 provision and incorporating Harding House.

Stocklake Park School is a secondary special school and together with its post 16 site, Harding House and the primary special school, Booker Park are The Vale Federation of Special schools.

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 Stocklake Park, and you are very welcome to come and visit to see us in action.

Stocklake Park School is part of the Vale Federation of Special Schools and is based on two sites, Stocklake Park main site and Harding House. We offer educational provision for students with complex learning difficulties, from 11 to 19 years of age. Our Harding House site is for post 16 students only, the curriculum designed specifically to develop the skills students need in order to prepare for life after school. At the Stocklake Park site, we provide for students aged 11-19, including post 16 students with a higher therapeutic need.

There are currently 48 students at the main site, based in seven tutor groups. The curriculum is organised around key questions and themes, which gives students the opportunity to experience and explore different subjects. Central to this is the development of communication and numeracy skills relating to real life situations. Students also experience a range of creative arts and explore aspects of personal, social, moral and emotional education. All our work is based in a belief in each student’s capacity to achieve and be the best they can be, enabling them to be as independent as possible. Our ethos is about encouraging students to value themselves and each other, maximising their enjoyment of learning, whilst developing self esteem and confidence.

Students have access to a range of therapies, multi-agency professionals and specialist staff, including speech and language therapists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and specialist teachers.
