Designated Provisions

Woolston Community Primary has two Designated Provisions for children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

  • An eight place KS1 provision for children with ASD aged 4-7 (Owlets).
  • An eight place KS2 Designated Provision for children with ASD aged 7-11(Owls).

All the children in both the key stage 1 and the key stage 2 Designated Provision have an Education and Health Care Plan (E.H.C.P.) and a diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorder.

The children are taught in a calm, nurturing, specialist environment. The classrooms are situated within the main school. The Owlet’s classroom is situated within the key stage 1 area and has access to outdoor continuous provision. The Owl’s classroom is situated in the key stage 2 area. All children have access to newly furbished and resourced classrooms.

Within the Designated Provisions the children follow the National Curriculum which is personalised to support their specific needs. We aim to challenge the children academically and where possible the children access mainstream lessons. There is a specific focus within both Designated Provisions on speech and language development, social skills development and independence. 

The children within the Designated Provisions take part fully in school life. Where possible all children will attend assemblies and are supported to integrate at break time and lunch time. The children take part in all school events such as school trips, school discos, fayres, after school clubs and productions.
