Special Education Needs
Bradstow School caters for students who are severely disabled with autism and many have challenging behaviour and severe learning difficulties. In 2002, the DfES recognised the school as a Regional Resource for children with Autistic Spectrum Disorders and challenging behaviour. The school has developed radical approaches to the education, support and management of pupils with challenging behaviour and ASD, that involve ensuring the environment for learning presented to the child is non-threatening and accessible to them at their own level. This approach has been recognised by Ofsted (July 05) as being highly successful, and they report that "Pupils make remarkable progress in the way they overcome communication and social difficulties and so become able to learn." They go on to say that "There are many instances of remarkable change for pupils and students whose severely challenging behaviour meant that other special schools could not accommodate them." This progress was re-enforced by the parents who are reported to be "very pleased with the school and feel very strongly that their children have been able to succeed and learn to communicate and be more sociable than ever before."
