Special Education Needs

The children and young people at Beverley school require a very structured approach to learning and they benefit from a high staffing ratio (generally a teacher and two assistants to 7 or 8 pupils). Our approach is autism-specific, and designed to maintain a friendly, calm and purposeful atmosphere. Staff know pupils well, and respect their individual needs. The organisation of the school, our teaching styles and our excellent staff/pupil relationships, all minimise the stress on our pupils. This helps them to make the most of their communication and interaction skills, and to benefit fully from the educational opportunities on offer. Historically, Beverley School was established as a School for the Deaf. Provision for children with autism was added in the 1980s and the balance of the population then steadily changed. The school has moved through a phased reorganisation, with provision for deaf pupils transferring to mainstream settings. Beverley is now uniquely placed as the only 100% autism-specialist school and service in the Tees Valley area. Throughout the reorganisation period, there have been many opportunities to build on the school’s strengths. In partnership with Middlesbrough LEA, we are ensuring that Beverley is recognised as a regional centre of excellence for the education of children with autism. We have succeeded in recruiting and training an excellent staff team, a programme of extensive building refurbishment work has been completed, and many specialist facilities have been added. Beverley School also provides training and advice to other schools with pupils on the autistic spectrum. This aspect of our work continues to grow, and we have built a network of contacts to support a range of genuinely inclusive options appropriate to the needs of individual pupils.
