At VSV, we believe all students deserve the chance to learn to the best of their ability. Additionally, we emphasise the importance of enjoying positive wellbeing and safety. VSV staff will work in partnership with you to make this possible.
We want you to feel like VSV is a place families belong, where students can connect with other students and staff. A place where people are accepted and respected for who they are. We are here to help you and your child find a path to succeed and grow, whatever your circumstances.
For this to happen, we need to work together to build resilience – the ability to cope with all the challenges life throws at us each day. We understand there are times when this is easier said than done, so we make it easy for you to get help when you need it.
The Learning Advisor allocated to your child will be one of the first people you get to know at VSV. They will be your main point of contact. Your Learning Advisor will metaphorically walk alongside you through the year to help with the varied questions and challenges that arise. It might be about putting together the best learning plan to meet student needs, or it might be checking in when stress levels are on the rise. Call or email them with any queries.
Sometimes we find ourselves feeling overwhelmed by the demands of school and life or feel daunted by big changes that might be hard to deal with. The Student Wellbeing and Inclusion teams are here to help work with you and the practitioners supporting your children. We can collaborate by combining the expertise of your care professionals with our learning support.
The Student Inclusion team can help build a rich understanding of support needs and strategies for students with learning difficulties or disabilities of any kind.
Our Student Wellbeing team can assist when a student is struggling with their mental health, when life or family circumstances prove particularly challenging, or any time they feel unsafe.
