Thames Valley School has published their Local Offer providing information on Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

Thames Valley School is a day school that offers education to autistic children who have been referred by their local authority. This is delivered through the mainstream National Curriculum which is suitably adapted to meet the individuals’ needs. Education is offered for pupils from year 1 to year 11 for children from Reading and surrounding local authorities.

All pupils must have an Education, Health and Care plan (EHCP, formerly a Statement of Special Educational Needs) that refers to a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder/ Condition. Though no longer recognised in the DSMV, our students’ diagnosis may include Asperger’s or High Functioning Autism.

Students may also have additional needs, for example obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Students may also have associated needs in the areas of emotional, social and communication and interaction development or sensory, or physical/motor difficulties.

Our students benefit from provision that opens up the breadth of a mainstream curriculum while recognising that some children need the additional support of our school to manage anxiety arising from their autism or sensory, social and communication difficulties and are unable to manage a mainstream school environment.

Students at Thames Valley school access a structured environment with targeted intervention and differentiation throughout the school day. Our students work at broadly age-related levels of attainment and we anticipate that they will gain a range of qualifications, including entry level and GCSEs.
