Welcome to our ASD Provision
We are a twenty-four place ASD resourced provision for children with a diagnosis of autism. The children follow a sensory-enriched, individualised curriculum focusing on the development of flexible thinking, communication and social understanding. Through community access, living language and practical activities the children develop their academic and social skills, whilst following a broad and balanced curriculum in line with the mainstream school. Our classrooms are kept calm and highly structured with minimal stimuli, to promote positive attitudes and good behavior. Each classroom has quiet learning areas, specialised teaching staff and access to a sensory room.
Keep up to date with what we are learning. Download our latest Curriculum Newsletter in the links opposite.

Newsletters & Links
Please find below a letter from each class with a number of suggestions for activities that can be completed during this period of home learning. There are also a number of links at the bottom of the page which you may find useful.
Now that the children are settled into their new routines at home, the Base team will update our web page with a selection of home school tasks and activities that your child may like to complete. There is no requirement that these must me done, but they are an ideal way to keep your child engaged in learning.
We would love you to keep a diary/scrap book to show all your friends and teachers what you have been doing at home. Help your child to write 3-5 sentences/ single words and adding photos or drawings of your daily activities. We really look forward to sharing them in class with all your friends.
Monday 30th March to Friday 3rd April 2020
As we become a little more settled with our new at home routines, we are learning that our timetables change and we have managed to find some calm in this.
This week can you focus on developing your creative side. Try to draw different animals, plants or household items. Try to focus on each drawing for 15-60 minutes, if you make a mistake, that’s OK it is part of the creative process.
