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 seven teaching assistants (Mrs Draby, Mrs Connor, Mrs Martin, Miss Lapham, Miss Musselwhite, Mrs Baily and Mrs McFarlane) 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 needs in Rowlings.
Autumn Term –
Carroll Class – Our book focus this term is a fun story called ‘Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus’ – we will use the story to write from character point of view, learn how to write speech and how to make our writing flow using sentence structure. The book will also allow us to explore different emotions, and how we could cope when we are feeling frustrated. Maths will focus on number knowledge, reading and writing both numerals and words and being able to order, partition and describe numbers with confidence. In Geography we are learning about ‘Our World’ and about the continents and oceans of the sea.
