Valence School

STLS Sevenoaks

The Sevenoaks Specialist Teaching and Learning Service is based at Valence School in the beautiful Kent countryside near Westerham 

We work within the KCC, STLS service vision, aiming to work alongside fellow professionals in maintained schools in Kent.

The overarching aim of the STLS is to support early years settings and schools to build their capacity and confidence in identifying the right children at the right time, in delivering high quality provision for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), in improving pupil progress and outcomes and to spread the best practice across educational settings.    

Sevenoaks District Priorities:

To offer a wider range of bespoke training to schools and settings, so they can increase their capacity to deliver the Mainstream Core Standards and develop more inclusive practice

To work closely with and develop projects with secondary schools to increase staff knowledge and confidence when including students with SEND
