Calderdale’s ASD Resourced provision for Key Stage 2 is based within Cliffe Hill. This is a 6 place provision, managed by the Specialist Inclusion Team and the school.

Who the provision is for?

The provision is intended to meet the needs of up to six pupils who:

  • Are within Key Stage 2, Years 3 - 6
  • Have an EHC or Statement of SEND within which there is a diagnosis of ASD identified as the primary need
  • Require access to a high adult : pupil ratio
  • Require access to a specialist resourced classroom with specially trained teaching and skilled support staff
  • Require ASD specific strategies eg TEACCH
  • Require a modified and controlled social/language environment.
  • Require access to specialist support, advice and intervention from a range of staff in the ASD Team
  • Require an individualised specific curriculum delivered alongside the National Curriculum, with differentiation and modification as required and direct teaching of social skills
  • Require a low stimulation environment
  • Require a combination of small group and 1:1 teaching
  • Require a sanctuary/refuge for certain periods of the day
  • Require support to manage behaviour arising out of ASD relating to sensory needs and inflexibility of behaviour
  • Have the potential for inclusive learning with mainstream peers
  • Have the potential to learn appropriate social behaviours from mainstream peers

What are the aims of the provision?

  • To provide detailed ongoing assessments for pupils to determine future educational needs.
  • To provide intensive ASD specific teaching and an ASD specific environment that equips pupils with the appropriate strategies to enable them to become successful learners.
  • To provide pupils with ASD access to mainstream peers and learning opportunities in a supportive environment.

What is the admission process?

Parents/ carers are welcome to view the provision and the mainstream school and talk to staff. Following this, if parents/carers wish to pursue a place within the provision they are asked to contact the SEN team and request that the SEN team consult with school. The SEN team and the ASD Team will be able to offer families support with this process.
