“Toward Community Inclusion”
Allenvale School is part of the special education network provision for the Canterbury region.
Allenvale School provides education in a specialist setting with specialist trained teachers and therapists who are supported by competent teacher assistants. The school has excellent resources. It has a history of effectively meeting the pastoral and academic needs of its students.
Allenvale School is an option for parents to consider if their child is verified to receive ORS (Ongoing Resourcing Scheme).
It is my view that flexible pathways are the key to meeting the needs of children and young persons with disability. These students may receive their education in several settings that may include specialist schools, satellite units, or mainstream and transition settings. The programmes are designed to meet the needs of these young people while at the same time affording flexibility in placement.
