Autism Focus

Every day we set up classrooms that are engaging and designed to facilitate a quality educational experience for learners with autism.
Staff receive specialist autism training to gain depth of knowledge and understanding of the Autism Competency Frameworks for Early Years, Key Stages 1–4 and post-16, in order to plan for the overall autism provision at the academy.
A primary focus for the school is the development of educational practice to support children and young people with autism and a range of co-existing needs.
Staff are trained to deliver the competency standards from the Autism Education Trust which is approved by the DfE to enable schools to deliver the DfE autism standards. All teaching staff are trained in the principles of TEACCH (Treatment of education of autistic and related
communication children), Attention Autism and PECS (Picture Exchange Communication System).
