Welcome to The Cotton Tree
A Specialist ASD Facility
A developing practice to meet the needs of pupils with
Aspergers Syndrome and Autistic Spectrum Disorder
intergrating into mainstream school.
The specialist ASD Facility at Blacklands Primary School aims to promote the development of pupils with a diagnosis of Aspergers Syndrome and high functioning autism both as individuals and communicators, by providing a high quality special educational service.
Our purpose is to provide access to a mainstream curriculum, whilst providing the necessary supportive enviroment for our pupils to become successful learners.
The enviroment in the facility has been purpose built and designed to take account of the needs of the pupils. It includes quiet safe spaces and low arousal enviroments. The accommodation is divided into designated defined areas for teaching and learning, play and recreation as well as sensory activities.
