Autism provision

Marlborough is an autism-friendly school and welcomes children with autism into our mainstream school.

From September 2017 we will have a specialist autism provision, Anstruther House, within our new school building.

The provision, when full, will be able to cater for 16 primary age children and is specifically designed for children with a primary diagnosis of autism whose needs can’t be fully met in a mainstream classroom.

Admission to the provision is decided by the local authority SEN panel in conjunction with the school.

In September 2017 we plan to admit a maximum of 5 children up to Year 3. As the year progresses we aim to increase the roll and from September 2018 plan to admit children from Year 4 upwards.

The provision will be staffed by a full-time lead teacher for children with autism and by a number of teaching assistants who are experienced and trained in supporting children with autism. The school will also have access to a speech and language therapist and occupational therapist.
