Methodist Communication Resource is an Adapted Mainstream Integrated Resource for children from reception to year 6 who have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). The Resource aims to meet the needs of those children with Autism Spectrum Conditions and/or speech, language and communication needs.
What do we do?
We provide an adapted sensory provision which reduces sensory stimulation for our pupils allowing them to successfully access a class room environment. By providing a safe, secure and nurturing environment, our learners are given the best possible opportunity to achieve their full potential both academically and socially whilst developing speech, language and communication.
We deliver a broad and balanced adapted curriculum with a high emphasis on social communication. We offer academic and/or social inclusion as well as reverse inclusion for pupils within mainstream school who have social communication difficulties. We offer a wide range of opportunities which are led by the children’s needs and interests.
Pupils attending the Resource come from across the Wakefield District and admission into our Resource is co-ordinated by Wakefield Local Authority via the Special, Needs & Assessment Team (SENART).
