We introduced the Enhanced Resource Provision - Silver Street Campus to help address and meet the specific needs of the pupils who have a diagnosis of Autism. There are fifteen pupils between 3 classes based on ability. All pupils follow a curriculum which meets their abilities and stage of development. They have access to Speech and language delivered by a trained teaching assistant; specialist trained teaching assistants; the support of the Disability Team and access to hydrotherapy when needed.
The main benefit of the enhanced resource is that classes are highly structured and learning is taught in smaller groups. Pupils are taught the curriculum by a small, highly trained group of staff that pupils work with each and every day. Therefore, pupils are given stability and feel secure with the smaller group of adults they are working with. The timetable follows a strict structure and routine to suit the needs of young people with ASC. Enhanced Learning teaching assistants are always with the pupils.
