Teacher explaining something to student

Our staff

Our staff members are knowledgeable, experienced and committed to providing the best quality education to your child. Everyone who works at Thames Valley School is trained in working with autistic children.

We are a small, close-knit team, and we work together every day, sharing our expertise and observations to make sure that your child is happy, thriving and learning well.

Every child in our school has a learning mentor. Their mentor supports them in their daily lessons and helps them to carry out their programme so they get to know your child well. The mentor also talks regularly to you, involving you in your child’s progress and keeping you up to date.

If you would like to talk to any member of our staff, please contact the school office.
