Rainbow Room 2017 - 2018

Mrs Booth

Resource Provision Manager & SLT member

The ASC resourced provision was established in September 2007 to provide high quality teaching and support for pupils who have been diagnosed with Autistic Spectrum Condition. The resource is made up of a base room (the ‘Rainbow Room') located within the mainstream school. The Rainbow Room has five key zones:

  • A group teaching area
  • Sensory room

  • Play therapy and social areas

  • Outdoor play area

The base room is used to support learning, be a safe place to which pupils can return to if they are feeling anxious or stressed and a ‘safe haven’ at lunch and break times. We hope that our pupils perceive the base room as their space within the school.

The resource manager works collaboratively with an attached speech and language therapist, together with a team of learning support assistants. The resource welcomes the opportunity to work with parents and other professionals involved in the education and care of the pupils.

We recognise that our ASC pupils will have a wide range of different special needs. Staff use their very good understanding of their pupils difficulties and abilities to develop very positive relationships. Excellent opportunities are available both within the Rainbow Room and through the inclusion of pupils in normal lessons with their peers.

On a Friday morning, some of the children from the Rainbow Room go to New Barn Farm our local branch of the RDA for horse riding lessons. This is a very valuable experience for the children as it promotes speech and language development, strengthens their core muscles and develops gross motor skills of balance and coordination.

The children in the Rainbow Room are supported by an expereienced team of teachers and teaching assistants:
