Welcome to Medeshamstede Academy.
We aim to educate our pupils in a positive, caring and secure environment which gives them access to a mainstream school experience wherever appropriate. We value and celebrate achievement at an individual level and each pupil will follow an educational programme that is designed to his/her needs.
We will develop a strong partnership with parents and we recognise that a team effort is needed to ensure pupils can make the best progress possible.
The vision of this Academy is to ensure that pupils with Autism/Asperger’s Syndrome have enhanced educational opportunities in terms of:
- specialist teaching and learning approaches in the special school
- access to wider curriculum, examination preparation, learning facilities
- well planned vocational opportunities, and post-16 pathways.
The school will become a ‘Centre of Excellence’ for professionals working with pupils on the Autistic Spectrum.
