School Description

Aycliffe School, the North East Centre for Autism, is a small school. It is one of two independent schools run by the North East Autism Society. It provides education for pupils with autism. The school opened in January 2013 and is registered for 60 pupils aged three to 19 years. There are currently 51 pupils on roll aged between five and 19. Inspection report: North East Centre for Autism – Aycliffe School, 5–7 March 2019 Page 8 of 11 Pupils are divided into six classes, grouped according to their individual needs and stages of development. A group of pupils access the curriculum off-site, making use of local facilities to re-engage pupils with learning. These pupils are taught by school staff and are gradually integrated into the main school provision. A few pupils have agreed part-time packages while their particular needs are being addressed, with the intention of developing the programme to make it full-time. The school does not use any alternative education provision. Few pupils come from ethnic minority communities. Most pupils have an education, health and care plan. Pupils are funded from a number of local authorities. Currently this includes Stockton, Durham, North Yorkshire, Hartlepool, Middleborough, Darlington, Sunderland and Northumberland. The cost varies according to pupils’ individual needs. The school was last inspected in April 2016, when it was judged to be good.
