Our base for students with an EHCP specifying a diagnosis of autism, speech and language difficulties, or a social communication disorder as a prime area of need.
Savio offers a quiet and supportive environment away from the usual hustle and bustle of secondary school life. It offers Speech and Language Therapy support, social awareness and support groups, withdrawal for 1:1 and small group work, independent quiet study time at TEACCH-style workstations and access to IT facilities. At break and lunchtime, there are games and activities on offer and Savio students are encouraged to invite their friends in to play games and socialize.
The purpose of Savio is to support students to access the curricular activities of the main school with the appropriate level of support, whilst providing a place, and staff expertise, for some very specific and individual needs.
Our guiding principles:
Savio is an Autism Resource Base within a mainstream Roman Catholic Salesian 11-18 school.
