Our Orchard consists of 5 specialised classes for children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder, one preschool and four outreach classes where children with autistic spectrum disorder get tailored education.
Our Orchard provides an excellent class size ratio with one teacher and two special needs assistants to every six children. As well as our specialised classes and highly experienced teachers, we supply access to Play Therapists, Speech and Language Therapists and Occupational Therapists. This may be further supplemented with additional specialised services which Beechpark provide in the school.
In line with our policy on inclusion, the children in Our Orchard are integrated into our mainstream classes wherever possible and we have seen the benefits that this can bring to the school as a whole.
We provide a number of facilities that support a holistic approach to each child’s development including but not limited to:
- Multi-Sensory room
- Ball Pool
- Trampoline room
- Interactive Whiteboards
Our Summer School
All the children in the orchard are eligible to attend our two-week summer school programme, which takes place every July.
