Welcome to Beverley School
Our vision is to provide a happy, caring and stimulating environment where children and young people will recognise and achieve their full potential. We provide opportunities for all pupils to have a wide range of experiences and become independent learners so that they can make a valuable contribution to society. Beverley School is a community where everybody is welcomed and no one should feel alone. We show respect for everyone and care about our school environment. We set high standards of learning and celebrate the achievements of every pupil. We value the partnership which exists between our school, our parents, our community and the part we all play in realising our vision.
Beverley School is an all age specialist school for pupils who have an autistic spectrum condition. All pupils follow the National Curriculum and most will achieve external accreditation, including GCSE where possible, by the time they leave us. We take some pupils from our nursery which is based at Viewley Hill Primary School and some pupils generally join us at other points throughout the key stages if there is a vacancy. Pupils also have the option to stay with us after they are 16 if it is felt to be appropriate and most of our pupils do follow that option.
I believe that our greatest resource is our dedicated team of staff who endeavour to provide the very best in education as well as managing the social and emotional needs of pupils. Our staff are all trained to meet the needs of children and young adults who have autism and work in close partnership with parents, governors and the local community to provide an excellent educational experience for all.
The Tees Autism Strategy group is developing a local plan to improve services for children with Autism. To make sure the plan describes what is important to families whose children are affected by Autism we want to gather as much information as possible.
This questionnaire aims to gain an overview of the key issues facing families affected by autism. The information gathered will be used to populate key themes for the children’s autism strategy.
Please can you take some time to complete the questionnaire below.
