The Open Days at LVS Oxford on Friday 20th and Saturday 21st September were a great success with over 150 visitors.
Visitors were a mixture of parents, local education authorities, local business, prospective employees and local residents.
The school for young people with a diagnosis of autism and Aspergers will open in September 2014 and a number of visitors on the day spoke to Director of HR, Nikki Annable, about opportunities to work for us at LVS Oxford in the future. The school will have a requirement for both administrative and specialist teaching staff with special education needs experience.
Local education authorities and parents were invited to come and talk to Director of Special Educational Needs, Sarah Sherwood about their future requirements and a quiet room was set up for those who felt they wanted to speak privately. A bedroom was decorated and furnished to give a good representation of the facilities that will be available to the students who will start to fill the special needs school from September 2014.
Nicola Blackwood, MP for Oxford West visited on Friday to chat with Sarah Sherwood about the special educational needs in the area and the facilities that LVS Oxford will be able to offer children with a diagnosis of autism and Aspergers.
Local residents also popped in to visit and find out more about how the special needs school will operate in the future and for some to revisit a place that holds a lot of memories for them.
There is another Open Day on Saturday 28th September 2013 – if you would like to come along then click to find out more: Saturday 28th
My vision is employability and independent living skills for students with learning difficulties.
