The Hive Specialist Resourced Provision (ASD)
Holy Trinity and St John’s are very proud to have The Hive, an ASD Specialist Resource Provision (SRP) for children with a diagnosis of ASD (autism).
As a school, we strongly believe that every child has the right to access a mainstream education and we work closely with our SRP parents and our staff to adapt and personalise the provision we offer within our SRP.
We strongly promote integration, both ways, to ensure that the needs of each child are being met.
Integration into mainstream partner classes may look different for each child as timetables are bespoke to each child, taking into account their academic ability, social skills, strengths and interests.
Our Hive SRP team deliver bespoke curriculum following the TEACCH approach in our specially designed ASD friendly classrooms, support SRP pupils across the school in their partner classes and deliver a range of interventions linked to pupils EHCP outcomes. We pride ourselves in knowing each SRP child individually, developing relationships so that we can build on every childs strengths and support their challenges.
The range of interventions we offer include:
Whilst academic progress is our focus, we also strongly believe in promoting the wellbeing of our all our children, as we recognise that when children are happy and feel safe, the learning flows. We offer daily check-ins and regular communication with home, access to our ASD classrooms, Woodland School, Thrive approach and sensory room.
Our Hive SRP is commissioned by the Kent and the Local Authority is responsible for deciding which children could be appropriately placed in our SRP, in consultation with us. As a school we receive consultation paperwork to review and decide whether our school can meet the pupils needs. A response must be sent within 15 days.
Our SRP has been designed to accomodate up to 16 pupils. . Our staffing includes a lead SRP teacher, HLTA and Teaching Assistants who all have knowledge and expertise in working with children with Autism.
