Valence School



School Term Time Only

If you can spare 2 hours a week, we are seeking local volunteers who would be willing to devote their time during term time to support our students in the water during their swimming lessons.

This is a hugely rewarding experience, and you will find our students are highly motivated, appreciative and love swimming!

You will need to:

  • enjoy being in the water and able to swim a minimum of 25m
  • enjoy working with children and young people

Valence School is a Kent County Council special school with residential facilities for students aged from 4 to 19 with physical disabilities, complex medical needs and associated learning and communication difficulties.  We are part of the Kent Special Educational Needs Trust (KsENT).

Please contact the HR team for further information and how to apply by emailing or call 01959 567841

Valence School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of every student and we expect all our staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  We value diversity and promote equality for all.
