Complex Provision

School Context

The Complex Needs provision at Baskerville School caters for secondary aged students with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder, with a range of additional communication needs and/ or learning difficulties. All students have an Education, Health and Care Plan in place. Students in the Complex provision are generally working at a developmental level between 0-60 months.

Our Vision

To provide outstanding, inclusive educational provision, to prepare students for a fulfilled life.

Our Motto

‘Together Aspire, Together Achieve’

Our Core Values

Aspiration, Compassion, Resilience and Respect.

These values will be incorporated into day-to-day learning activities.

In Baskerville School’s Complex Needs Provision, we offer a specialised curriculum for students who require additional intensive support with communication, cognition and learning, and self-help skills. The focus of our curriculum is to prepare our learners for their lives after leaving school.

The majority of students in our Complex Needs Provision will move on to colleges providing intensive support and/ or assisted living.

Our classes have a high ratio of staff to students. This allows for students’ individual learning needs to be addressed in the most effective way, whilst providing a sense of belonging to a class group.

The curriculum is delivered in a manner most appropriate to the students’ needs. Some subjects are discreetly taught. Others are delivered through themed activity based learning.

We believe that children and young people learn best when subject matter is related to content that engages and excites them. We have designed a curriculum which is fun, exciting, and which supports, challenges and extends all of our students’ learning. We do this through the teaching of inspiring topics which reinforce and enrich core learning. Our topic theme changes every half-term and is cross-curricular in design, allowing students to make connections across and between areas of learning.

Students work is celebrated on display, and our corridors are also transformed by our students’ learning.

Extra-curricular activities also form an important part of the curriculum.
