Provision for Autism
Welcome to Mulberry Primary School Provision for Autism, our provision meets the needs of children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder.
We are a positive learning provision working together with our mainstream school to unlock potential. The values that shape our Provision ethos are respect, integrity, and positive attitude for all.
We offer a rich and stimulating curriculum, which is individually tailored reflecting good practice in an environment that supports the pupil’s learning. The Provision offers a range of sensory and therapeutic interventions and a multidisciplinary approach to pupil needs. The Provision has developed a holistic approach working in partnership other agencies, parents and families to have their needs met.
We believe it is important for pupils to achieve their full potential and importance is placed upon achievement at all levels. Pupil achievement is celebrated and positive rewards are used to promote and encourage good behaviour and learning. There is a caring yet purposeful atmosphere within the Provision and there is a balance of focus between welfare and achievement for all.
Our Provision vision is:
- to promote excellence for all through a positive ethos and culture
- to be an inclusive school community so that everyone’s needs are met
- to be well resourced, so that the provision is innovative and outcomes are aspirational
- Are primary aged children 4 - 11 years
- Have an Educational Health Care Plan with a diagnosis of ASD
- May have associated difficulties e.g. medical, learning, sensory
- May use a variety of communication methods e.g. Makaton, PECS
- We believe all children are unique, especially those with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
- Three classes, a sensory room, a cooking area and access to mainstream facilities

No single approach or method is used in the Provision; we use a range of established autism specific approaches and methods, depending on the needs of the learner. These include attention autism, aspects of TEACCH, SPELL, PECS, Intensive Interaction, sensory integration and Social Stories.
