The ASD Support Base at Rosebrook Primary School in Stockton is an authority funded provision for Foundation Stage and KS1 children with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
The class has been established to accept pupils from September 2009.
It is able to offer 5 full time places.
Admission to the class is via moderating group.
Pupils admitted will be on the roll of Rosebrook Primary School.
A panel of relevant school staff and other professionals involved will meet termly to consider progress of the pupils on roll with a view to confirming the appropriateness of the place or recommending consideration be given to alternative provision. It is the aim that children will return to a supportive mainstream school setting and places should be kept open in their feeder primary school. Children have a dedicated, well resourced ASD friendly classroom and access to appropriate mainstream provision depending upon theneeds of the individual child.
Transport – If children reside out of the catchment area of the school, pupils will be transported to and from the base free of charge.
