Brunswick Park is one of four resource based schools in the borough, focusing on delivering a specific educational programme for children identified with Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC). Brunswick Park Primary School has 14 places for children with ASC in the Resource Base provision.
Over the last three years we have made significant changes to the running of our Resource Base. We provide a tailored curriculum to meet the individual needs of our children. We believe all children with ASC are unique and require an adapted curriculum to suit their needs and to develop the ‘whole child’ against the academic and wider curricula.
Children are grouped according to need, age and ability having access to a wide range of activities and accessing the National Curriculum where appropriate. They work in a small group with adult support and children are encouraged to work with different adults to help them gain independence.
Children access the mainstream environment where appropriate and work alongside their mainstream peers. Children are assessed using a ‘small steps’ approach which demonstrates their progress in clear and precise stages; this allows for progress to be tracked in small increments and targets to be set according to individual needs. Children work in a structured and ASC-friendly environment; our staff receive training regularly to support the delivery of a variety of ASC strategies and techniques.
