Thames Valley School

Special Free School Primary & Secondary

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

ThamesValleySchool is a free school sponsored by The National Autistic Society (NAS).

ThamesValleySchool caters for children and young people with autism (including Asperger syndrome) aged 5 to 16.

The school is a collaboration between The National Autistic Society and local authorities, voluntary groups, schools and parents. These groups have come together from Reading, West Berkshire, Wokingham and Windsor & Maidenhead to establish the school. The school benefits from The National Autistic Society's 50 years’ experience in the autism education sector and an evidenced commitment to continually improving outcomes for children and young people with autism.

At ThamesValley, each child has an inclusion plan that develops their ability to thrive in a range of environments. Inclusion opportunities are available for each child and may involve joining certain classes at mainstream school, or going to after-school clubs and other social occasions. IT is used to offer a range of learning opportunities and ThamesValleySchool has a ‘revolving door’ policy for some pupils, to equip them with the skills they need to be able to return to mainstream education.
