We are pleased to confirm that the Autism Accreditation Award Committee have awarded Watling View School an Autism Specialist Award according to our expectations for educational provisions.
The Committee found evidence from the Accreditation report that the provision was meeting the criteria for an Accredited Award. In particular:
• Staff have a working knowledge of evidence-informed approaches associated with good autism practice.
• They can adapt these specialist approaches so that support is personal centred and tailored to individual qualities, abilities, interests, preferences and challenges
• Practice is overall informed by an understanding of how to support each autistic individual in their communication and social interaction; in becoming more self-reliant; in sensory regulation and in maintaining their emotional well-being.
Congratulations on demonstrating standards of good practice in supporting autistic young people!
