Autism provision

Marlborough is an autism-friendly school and welcomes children with autism into our mainstream school as well as into our specialist provision, Anstruther House.

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.

The provision is 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 also has access to a speech and language therapist and occupational therapist.

Anstruther House is now open and the new students are all settling in really well. So far this term, the students have working on getting to know the routines of the school, learning each other’s names and exploring the new facilities and equipment we have. The swing in the Bodyshop is very popular as well as the sensory room lights and projector. The students have also been linked to a mainstream class and are enjoying having their mainstream peers to visit for games and play opportunities. See Classroom news for photos of Anstruther House.
