Welcome to Falcons class!
Falcons consists of seven students on the Autism Spectrum in key stages three and four.
The students are supported by five members of staff. Sally (class teacher) leads the class on a Monday, Thursday and Friday. Caroline (higher level teaching assistant) leads the class on a Tuesday and Wednesday. Fran, Eloise and Kimberley and Emma support the students throughout the week.
Our curriculum is based on the Autism Education Trust Progression Framework. This focuses on seven key areas:
- Social interaction
- Social communication
- Independence and community participation
- Social imagination and flexibility
- Emotional understanding and self-awareness
- Sensory Processing
The curriculum is personalised to meet the individual needs of each student and to ensure meaningful engagement. A structured and visual environment enables students to understand expectations and lower levels of anxiety.
