The Inclusion Centre is a resourced provision for children who have a diagnosis of ASD from ages 4 = 11. Children placed within the provision either have a statement of educational needs/Education and Health Care Plan or are currently undergoing assessment. The children will work towards being able to integrate into mainstream for some learning, with a high level of support for teaching staff to meet their specific needs from the provision staff. There are two teachers (Mrs Walton and Miss Keeler) one higher level teaching assistants (Mrs Watkins) and six teaching assistants and is supported by outside agencies, such as Educational Psychology and Speech and Language therapy. Staff from across the wider school also visit the provision to develop their skills. We use a variety of personalized learning styles to meet the individual needs of our children. Focusing on several areas of learning including academic progress, independence skills, social skills, coping and flexibility of thought. The provision is split across two classes, with a focus on speech and language and social skill needs in Carroll class, and Academic, social skills and social and emotional needs in Rowling.
