Resources for Families
Bringing School into the Home
We encourage all of our families to take part in activities at home to support their child’s learning. We spend time creating these activities to make them fun and engaging, and will support families to take ideas from school back into the home environment.
Each parent receives a ‘Curriculum Coverage Document’ at the beginning of each term which gives ideas of appropriate activities that complement what is being learned in the Academy. We are always on hand if you would like advice and support about these, just get in touch with any questions or we have an open door policy - please come and see us!
Links and Other Resources
As a family supporting a child with Autism and associated complex needs, we understand how important it is to have links to Information and Support which can benefit you and your child.
We also have a list of Local Activities that you may be interested to explore.
Useful communication resources
See below for a number of resources you might find useful when out and about. These have been made using widget symbols, using the software InPrint 3. You can create similar resources with a subscription to Widget Online - which you can trial for free for 21 days.
You might also like to take a look at Symbol World, which has news, information, stories and recipes that have the symbols added, for our students that can read and still benefit from the symbol support to help with their understanding.
