Valley Hope School is situated within Pacific Valley Christian School which has a strong history of catering for students with a variety of disabilities since its foundation. It is a caring, Christian school community that caters for students with a moderate level of Intellectual delay or who have an Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Pacific Valley Christian School is committed to providing a compassionate environment in which the Valley Hope School students are cared for and supported. While Valley Hope School has its own dedicated space there are many opportunities for the students to make use of the many facilities on site, including sporting, technology and creative art facilities.
Each student is unique and we aim to develop the full potential in each individual by providing a mixture of individualised and small group instruction and support. By working closely with the families and considering the specific needs of each student we will be able to plan for the best outcomes for each individual.
Developing Individual Education Plans are an important aspect in determining the student’s performance abilities and setting appropriate goals and outcomes that will address the needs of the student. Individual Education Plans are developed in consultation with parents or caregivers and may include other professionals if desired. Individual Education Plans (IEP) focus on areas specific to each students needs and may include areas such as communication, academic, social skills and behaviour.
Valley Hope School has a clear vision to honour Christ in all its programs and practices. Each staff member is a committed Christian and holds strongly to the belief that we are all created and loved by God. It is within this Christian environment that we can nurture and train the students to value and respect themselves and each other.
