Students in the school’s specialist provision for those with autism and social communication difficulties do well and make good progress as a result of the help they receive.Ofsted 2013
People on the Autistic Spectrum have a life-long condition that means that they are likely to need additional help in coping with school life and getting ready for after life after Year 11.
The Unity Centre (SCD Provision) at Lea Manor High School is here to not only support those ASC students placed with us but to promote a positive environment for all ASC-affected students attending Lea Manor while looking to foster independence.
The SCD Provision is an 8 place provision which is recognised as a centre of excellence for pupils with social communication difficulties. The centre is an inclusive, accessible, friendly and approachable centre where teamwork flourishes. We are proud of our successes, whilst remaining committed to self-evaluation and professional growth. We believe in cooperation and partnership with families, as well as with others in the local community and further afield, who share our commitment to improving the lives of anyone affected by autism.
Students are supported in Mainstream lessons, small groups or on a 1:1 basis depending on their needs and at the ‘unstructured’ times of before school & during lunch breaks.
