Understanding the individual needs of our young people is essential to supporting their development - we believe that a diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome or high-functioning Autism does not predict behaviour, or dictate support requirements. Every one of our young people is unique and our positive approaches are embedded across education and our waking-day curriculum.

Health & Well-being
All of our young people are encouraged and supported to develop and maintain healthy lifestyles, with a strong focus on good, sustainable physical and emotional health.
We support young people through a multi-disciplinary approach, using our specialist therapy, education and care teams to deliver programmes that ensure all young people take an active role in managing their own health and wellbeing.
Our staff deliver regular individual and group sessions to promote good health and are available to answer any individual health queries. Diet and nutrition are regularly reviewed and physical activites are offered as part of all study programmes.
Young people are supported to co-ordinate all necessary health appointments and staff monitor the general health of students and any medication requirements as necessary. All young people are coached in good personal care, sleep and hygiene routines.
To ensure a strong focus on positive mental health, all young people follow a varied tutorial programme which includes themes that explore individual roles and responsibilities in different contexts - including topics such as:
✓ Keeping safe
✓ Vulnerability within the community
✓ Equality & diversity
