The ASD Centre at Kingsdown has now been in existence for over 8 years, with students spread across all five year groups. The last four years have seen all twelve students supported by the centre successfully gaining GCSEs along with similar qualifications such as Entry Pathways and ASDAN Personal Social Development. All students have successfully moved on to further education colleges.
Students based in the centre are expected to attend 90% of lessons in mainstream with varying support depending on their needs. This support will include a mixture of academic and social skills. Normally our students are withdrawn from modern foreign languages and use this time in order to complete homework, work on social skills, understanding their autism and further skills recognised on the student's statement of educational needs.
The aim of the centre is to help students gain independence, offer safe opportunities to socialise and be included in all aspects of the school life. Inclusion is paramount to the social, emotional, educational and personal development of the students.
