As a specialist school for pupils with Autism we use The Arts as a motivator to enable our pupils to increase their confidence and strive for independence as well as being a tool to aid in the development of communication and self-expression. We have high expectations and focus on a 'can do' approach which highlights what pupils can do rather than what they find difficult. Not only do we celebrate the finished product but more importantly the process and learning which has been involved in reaching the end result which will hopefully develop self-occupancy skills and interests for adult life. Apart for the visual aspects of our Art sessions pupils are encouraged to explore the sensory aspect by using lots of different methods and materials such as glue, nail varnish, flour, cling film to name a few.
