Autism Unit

Our resource base opened in November 2019 to support the needs of children with autism. We are known as the Hive and can support up to 12 pupils within our provision. We recognise that each child is an individual and it is our aim to equip each child with skills and strategies to enable them to access, enjoy and succeed in school, reaching their full potential. 

We follow the Birmingham SEN Continuums and the Autism Progression Framework. We are passionate about providing the best for the children in our care and our teaching is centred around the individual abilities and needs of our pupils. We look closely at their next steps and provide them with many opportunities to generalise the skills they have learnt. We aim to integrate our children into the mainstream classes where many of the strategies used within the resource base will be adapted and implemented to ensure pupils succeed and access the learning.
