Autism Awareness Award

We had staff training (25 staff attended and 8 became champions) to ensure we had the knowledge and understanding to train other staff to be Autism Aware and be able to provide support to an individual with Autism, if needed.

Through this award we provided adjustments to the school environment to help individuals with Autism use the premises, for example signage outside rooms, a sensory room and a sensory garden. In addition to this we created resources for staff to work with the children.

Through training and use of resources we ensured appropriate and individualised help and communication that assists pupils with Autism.

We hope to develop and create a school environment where pupils feel comfortable disclosing their diagnosis of Autism should they wish to.
