About Stanton Vale School

Stanton Vale School is a vibrant all age special academy located in Long Eaton, working with students primarily from the south east of Derbyshire but also from Derby City, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire. Our students’ complex needs can act as a barrier to effective learning. The academy has a strong reputation for multi-disciplinary work aimed at overcoming these challenges. We then build on this by focusing on what students can do.

Our most complex students benefit from a specialist sensory based approach and learn through an experiential curriculum. Our more able students spend time working on key skills of learning and, at an appropriate time, their curriculum may become more formal in line with their developing skills and understanding. For all our students, outcomes rooted in their Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) are the driver to their learning and individual curriculum. As with any special school, we ensure equality of opportunity for our students and work hard to provide a range of additional activities such as college visits, residential activities, community visits and enhanced provision in sports and especially the arts.

The academy also benefits from having a dedicated nurse on site as well as access to speech & language therapy, physiotherapy and occupational therapy. Strong links with parents and governors are fostered through a range of formal and informal events with the academy striving to be at the centre of its community.

The students benefit from access to a swimming pool on site as well as specialist teaching spaces such as a ‘soft mobility room’, library, adapted kitchens. Externally we have large grounds. Dedicated play spaces are complimented with an allotment, quiet area and an outdoor willow learning space. Students also spend time at The Long Eaton School as well as attending Central College as appropriate.

Further information about our academy can be found on the website at
