  • Now and next boards
  • Visual time timetables
  • Work systems
  • Makton signing
  • Eye pointing
  • Objects of reference
  • Interpreting body language and expressions

  • ‘very impressed with the school’s clear sense of purpose in preparing its students for life after school. ’

    ASD report Dec 2017

  • ‘Pupils' relationships with adults are excellent, and they learn respect and appropriate behaviour from the staff. Pupils are accepting of each other’s varying needs, and show pleasure in each other’s successes.’
