The Hambrook School is our new SEND education provision specialising in working with children and young adults aged 5-18 with autism and other complex learning needs.
We work hard to provide a variety of bespoke learning opportunities in smaller class environments catered to the student’s individual needs.
To provide 360 degrees of care for every child to be safe, inspired and confident in applying what they learn in real life.
To provide a safe and enjoyable learning experience eradicating learnt helplessness while empowering children and young adults to be Safe, Enjoy their Learning and Have Fun so that they can be confident, independent citizens in the world.
- Be Mindful – Gain academic knowledge and qualifications allowing social mobility
- Be Motivational – Gain emotional literacy to assist students’ understanding with their social and emotional needs in overcoming challenges and obstacles
- Be Mechanical – Gain practical/Hands-on/outdoor learning skills because education isn’t always within four walls
- Be Meaningful– Work in partnership with Home/School/Outreach/Community as it sometimes takes a village to raise a child
Hambrook’s Three School Rules
- Be Safe
- Engage in your learning
- Have Fun with what you are doing
Hambrook School is a specialist autism school for children with an EHCP and a diagnosis of Autism. In addition, there may also be additional needs presented such as:
- Moderate to severe learning difficulties
- Challenges with emotional regulation that may lead to problematic or challenging behaviours
- Challenges in developing effective communication skills
- Difficulties with social interaction and building relationships
- Little or no awareness of danger and keeping safe
- A requirement for 1:1 support throughout waking hours.
- Other needs that can be supported through a multidisciplinary approach
In most cases, SEN departments of local authorities will send referrals or placement enquiries directly to the school or to the regional admissions manager for consideration. Parents and carers can choose to name Hambrook School on their child’s EHCP. When a local authority agrees the school can meet need they will liaise with the school on the behalf of parents/carers.
Hambrook School will carefully review every referral, consider if they can meet needs based upon the information presented in the EHCP, and where appropriate, the supplementary reports and assessments that can accompany a referral. The school will also consider the classroom spaces that are available, alongside the current cohort within the school. We may also visit the child in order to continue to assess potential suitability for placement at Hambrook School.
Our Admissions Manager will manage this process, communicating with local authorities and parents every step of the way.
