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), for whom the Local Authority deem Resource Based provision to best meet their needs. Brunswick Park Primary School has 14 places for children with ASC in the Resource Base provision.
A tailored curriculum is provided to meet the individual needs of our Resource Based children, to develop the ‘whole child’: balancing the development of life and social skills with academic learning.
Resource Based children are grouped according to need, age and ability, and have access to a wide range of activities, including to 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.
Resource Based children access the mainstream environment and work alongside their mainstream peers where appropriate. Attainment and progress are tracked using a ‘small steps’ approach that shows progress in clear and precise stages. These small increments of progress are used to inform individual, personalised targets. Children in the Resource Base work in a structured, ASC-friendly environment; our staff receive training regularly to support the delivery of a variety of ASC strategies and techniques.
