In 2019, our school was the first in Hampshire to receive an Autism-friendly award from the National Autistic Society.
We recognise the importance of helping students with autism to develop problem-solving skills to promote independence both in school and in the transition to adult life. We strongly believe in creating an individualised programme to meet each child’s needs adapting a unique ‘autistic curriculum’. This not only captures the students learning needs but also addresses social, emotional and communication needs of children and young people with autism, and nurtures their independence and well-being.
Our staff are regularly trained in courses and techniques to enable effective practice in supporting students to make good progress both academically and socially. The school promotes joint working with specialist health practitioners and have their own therapy team, which includes a Speech and Language Therapist, an Occupational Therapist, Music Therapist and Play Therapist.
At GLADE, we live by our values. We accept, inspire and nurture students, offering a bespoke education with a therapeutic approach. We encourage students to be ambitious for their next steps.SEE OUR VALUES, HERE
