Resourced Provision for Autistic Students
As a part of our commitment to providing an inclusive education we have an additional resource for up to 14 students identified as having more specific needs due to autism. We aim to provide a high level of support enabling all students to access a broad and balanced curriculum in conjunction with our mainstream provision. Students access their curriculum mainly in standard school teaching sets, however some lessons may be held in small groups or on a one-to-one basis in a specified quiet room. During these lessons we aim to develop students’ skills through interaction with experienced specialist staff. The skills learnt may include life tasks, language and communication skills and a range of social skills.
Throughout the year we are actively engaged in inducting new students into this provision and a member of the SEN Team will be happy to discuss any individual transition plan with yourself or your child’s current education providers.
Pupils are allocated places into the Resourced Provision through the local authority’s formal procedures which assess individual pupil needs against set entry criteria.
As part of the local authorities outreach support services the provision manager also works with staff and students in other mainstream schools, supporting the needs of autistic students at Key Stages 3 & 4.
