Principal’s Message

Welcome to Ascot Vale Special School

It gives me great delight to introduce our school to you. We have a wonderful setting, facilities and importantly fantastic teachers and education support staff who support the students in their learning  across the school.

We are a state government school that caters for students with a cognitive disability from five to eighteen years of age.

Students need to meet the eligibility requirements for enrolment. To access the free bus transport to and from the school you must reside within the school’s designated transport zone. Please ring the school for information on enrolment and access to bus transport.

The school has wonderful facilities and grounds to engage and connect the students to their learning and recreational opportunities.

The school’s city location delivers easy access to public transport to the city and opens up the resources of the city of Melbourne for program enrichment and diversity that students are able to experience.

Travel Education for our senior students is focused on increasing the ability of students to travel independently and safely using Public Transport. The school’s location makes this program extremely accessible and viable for the students engaged in this program.

The school’s vision, “Every student, every day to be given the opportunity to be the best they can be” is at the forefront of everything that we do to ensure that all students experience success and achieve their learning goals established in their Individual Learning Plans.

The school has created wonderful learning spaces for the students that are well resourced and cater for the individual learning styles and needs of the students. Every student has access to digital technologies to support their learning and ability to communicate. They engage in new digital platforms through the many applications that are available to them.

The school has many wonderful programs that are showcased on this website. Please take the time to view them and if you have any questions please contact the school for further information.

The school values the partnership of parents and carers in the education of your child whether it is classroom support, school council or engagement in whole school celebrations. Your support will make a difference to the school and the learning that is delivered to the students.

The curriculum of the school is based on the Victorian Curriculum and there is a strong focus on English, Mathematics and Science Learning Areas.

The school offers Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) for year 11 and 12 students. The school is proud of the achievements that the students have made in undertaking this certificate and the increased vocation options that have been delivered through this program.

I encourage you to take the opportunity to visit the school and view the learning that is taking place, its facilities and the resources that are available to support students in their learning.

This school is a hidden gem that offers every student the opportunity to reach their full potential as a learner and as a member of our society.

Thank you for taking the opportunity to view our school’s website.
