It is important that schools providing education to those with special educational needs are doing so correctly and appropriately. The National Autistic Society will award a school with 'Autism Accreditation' if they believe through observation that they are compliant with expected 'core standards'.
Heathermount was visited over a three day period where our knowledge of autism was observed through teaching practice, room layout, interaction with students, senior leadership and many other areas; which was then considered against criteria set out by the National Autistic Society.
We are extremely proud to announce that once again we have achieved our 'Autism Accreditation' status which is reflective of the hard work and dedication of every single member of staff. This time we were assessed against the 'Advanced' criteria and delighted to say Heathermount is an Autism Accreditation Advanced provision.
The latest Autism Accreditation report is available below. More information about Autism Accreditation is available on the National Autistic Society website.
