Bankside School offers a therapeutic educational approach with a staff team dedicated and determined to support every individual.
We work to the “Ask, Accept, Develop” autism strategy developed by Options Autism, which recognises that despite some shared traits, every autistic person is unique in their own way. This strategy enables our staff to appreciate the individual abilities of every child.
Our staff are trained in Trauma Informed Practice so we’re well equipped to help pupils address underlying complex trauma experienced during childhood or in previous school placements. We also have access to a clinical team who provide care and therapy to benefit our pupils.
Clinical support may include:
Speech and Language Therapy
Other types of therapy as required
Our holistic approach and safe and nurturing environment enables us to give our pupils the space and opportunity to grow in confidence.
