Geographical remit: 


The Vale Federation, encompasses two Special Schools (one primary, one secondary-aged) in Aylesbury across 3 locations. We support children and young people who are amongst the most vulnerable in our society. All children within the school have severe or profound learning difficulties and come to us as our specialist provision is required to support their often wide ranging needs . Staff working at our schools make a difference to the lives of every child who comes to our school. We work together closely as teams, devising learning programmes alongside highly trained professionals, including speech, occupational and physio therapists to ensure each individual pupil has the best possible chance of reaching his or her potential. Parents tell us the difference our staff make to the lives of their children is impossible to measure. We build strong relationships with children and their families to make the small steps of steady progress that result in big achievements for our youngsters


Through a multi-professional approach, we create a high quality, inclusive, happy and safe school environment where pupils with a range of learning difficulties are:

  • Inspired to engage in learning
  • Enabled to realise their greatest level of independence and emotional resilience
  • Supported to recognise and celebrate their achievements now and in the future
