Aurora Redehall School supports children aged 6-16 years with communication difficulties typically associated with Asperger’s Syndrome and Autism.
Students are likely to experience challenges with social communication and interaction with others and may have additional issues around their understanding of the social rules. These difficulties can impact on their emotional wellbeing, behaviour and ability to participate in education.
Larger environments requiring movement between classrooms, noise and big groups can create anxieties which become a barrier to learning and social development, resulting in many having extended periods out of school and then falling behind their peers.
Redehall School provides a learning structure and environment conducive to this specific student profile, designed to help them re-engage with learning and enjoy school life. With the right support, most students have the opportunity to achieve academic success and can work towards GCSEs and equivalent qualifications.
Specialist teaching and integrated therapeutic support, together with small classes and a nurturing approach give them the opportunity to work at a pace that’s right for them. We help build self-esteem and confidence, work on strategies to support students’ individual needs and enable them to focus on their education, alongside the development of their social skills.
