Criteria for admission:
Students must have a final Statement of Special Educational Need or an Education, Health and Care Plan and will be diagnosed with high functioning autism or Asperger’s Syndrome. However, due to the variation in diagnostic terminology, pupils may be diagnosed with an autistic spectrum disorder, autistic spectrum condition or autism.
Upon admission, a baseline assessment is undertaken and used in conjunction with pupils’ Statements of Special Educational Needs (SSEN) or Education, Health and Care Plan (EHC Plan) to help develop Individual Education Plans, Behaviour Plans and, where relevant, Placement Plans.
These person-centred plans detail students’ individualised academic, leisure and therapy programmes. They also identify areas of ability and need, as well as personal aims and aspirations.
