Principal's Message

Welcome to Dandenong Valley Special Developmental School. Our school has excellent facilities and outstanding educational programs, which support the learning needs and wellbeing of our children and young people.

Our Vision is to achieve excellence in learning and teaching and provide the best outcomes for each student. We provide a comprehensive program across all areas of the school based on the Victorian Curriculum. Our Transition program for our senior secondary students supports the transition of our students to their post-school options.

Student wellbeing is a key focus for our school. We use the School Wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS) Framework to promote a proactive approach to teaching all students agreed expected behaviours and pro-social skills. Self-regulation strategies support students to manage their emotions.

The school promotes close links with parents and the wider school community through open and regular communication. Staff work in partnership with parents, families and carers to ensure the development of individualised goals and learning programs for each child. Our Therapy Team assist classroom staff to develop and implement individualised programs for all students.

Please explore our website and feel free to contact us for any further information or to make an appointment to see the school.

Principal - Ms. Rhonda Fletcher
