SEND at Valence

At Valence Primary School, every child matters. We aim to create a happy, healthy, safe and secure space for our children to learn in. We encourage our children to become independent lifelong learners who achieve their full potential, based on teachers' high expectations. We value caring attitudes and respect towards each other, the environment and the wider community.

Zones of Regulation

At Valence, we use Zones of Regulation to support our pupils in being able to name their emotions, notice how they are physically and mentally feeling, learn strategies to support themselves in self-regulation and how to support others.

You can find out more on our Zones of Regulation page.
