Mrs Bunyan, our school SENCo is the registered Autism Lead for our school. This is your initial point of contact if you need information about services available.
Every child with autism will have a Pupil Profile set up for them, highlighting their strengths, interests and needs – and will be reviewed regularly.
We have a variety of safe places where your child can go to be quiet and free from any distractions.
Our staff will be receiving training by the Autism Education Trust to ensure that everyone who comes into contact with your child has a greater understanding of their individual needs.
We ensure that there is a positive ‘Transition Pathway’ that will support transitions within the school and when your child moves on to their next school.
We ensure that we have strong parental partnerships so that any change in your child’s circumstances are quickly responded to and needs are met. This relies on open parental communication.
We endeavour to listen to your child’s views, we take in to consideration that children have different ways of communicating and we will need appropriate strategies to support them.
If you have a child on the autistic spectrum and you would like to find out more about how we can support them, please speak to Mrs Bunyan.
