Admission Criteria:

  • There will be an indication that the provision of autism friendly strategies improves the child's progress.
  • There must be clear evidence that the child's cognitive ability shows some areas within the low average range or above. Pupils performance in English or Maths should indicate the potential to achieve at least Pre Key Stage Standard 3 at Key Stage 1 and Pre Key Stage 5 at Key Stage 2.
