Advanced Autism Accreditation
The school has the Autism Accreditation Advanced Status for its practice in Autism through Autism Accreditation. “The Advanced award is for schools and services that are providing support for autistic people which is of an exceptionally high standard in both quality and consistency. Such provisions stand out as being exceptional and can be considered as centres of excellence.” NAS Autism Accreditation What are the criteria for Advanced status?
- To be an outstanding and innovative provision that goes beyond others
- To demonstrate wider initiatives that have significant impact for autistic people
- To have excellent feedback from a range of stakeholders
- To show high levels of consistency and quality in observed practice during the review
The school views external feedback and validation as an important part of it’s development. We are a member of the special school’s network hub for Challenge Partners; a practitioner-led collaboration to lead on school improvement through peer review. The school is part of a network of schools which annually take part in reciprocal peer to peer reviews, led by a lead inspector, usually Ofsted or HMI. The school had a virtual Challenge Partners review in 2020–2021 which focused on three key areas; Leadership and Management, Curriculum and Remote Learning. The report recognises the work of the school over the year and this is reflected in a really positive report. Read the school Challenge Partners Review Reports below by clicking on the link below.
