Resource Base - Waterfall Class

Our resource base is currently for children aged 4 – 7.   This is expected to expand to 7 – 11 from September 2025.  It offers a low-stimulus environment and a high adult to child ratio, and staff with specialist knowledge of social communication difficulties.  A speech and language therapist works with the children once a week.   Children will access our mainstream curriculum at least part of the time and will be attached to a mainstream class, which they will spend some of their time in, as appropriate to the child’s needs.

Children must:

  • have an Education, Health and Care Plan
  • have a diagnosis and primary need of ASC
  • be able to communicate verbally
  • be toilet trained
  • have the potential to access the mainstream curriculum
  • be able to benefit from the structured, low-stimulus environment
  • be within the learning range of average ability to moderate learning difficulties.

To apply for a place in our resource base, consultation must be made via your local authority’s SEN department.
