ASD Provision

Our ASD students are usually taught in ASD-specific groups with specialist staff, however, we do not operate a separate ASD unit within the school as it is important all our students are part of one family.

What is Autism?

Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects the way a person communicates and relates to people around them. Making sense of the world and everyday social interaction can be difficult for children with autism.

Problems are experienced with three main areas of development:

  • Social interaction
  • Social communication
  • Flexible thinking and behaviour

Children may also have sensory problems.

There are different forms of autism which are collectively referred to as Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD).

Approach

Our core belief is that structure and positive intervention with built-in opportunities for change and risk-taking achieve the best results for pupils with autism.

Through the joint working of well trained and experienced staff, the school is able to provide an environment that recognises the difficulties Autism can present. The school promotes and supports the development of independence, self-esteem and confidence for each young person.

Our general approach involves:

  • A high level of structure
  • Low arousal environment with clearly defined areas for group and individual work
  • Visual strategies
  • Specific communication programmes
  • Positive behaviour support programmes
  • Person centred learning
  • Curriculum

A broad and balanced curriculum is offered with an emphasis on social communication and understanding. Skills for independence, problem solving and community participation are developed.

The school is making such a difference to the lives of our young people. I am immensely proud of all that you are achieving.

Cllr Ruth Dombey, Leader of Sutton Council
