The school’s “Bluebird” unit, named by a current pupil, is a specialist ASC-friendly provision. Decorated throughout with calm, low arousal colours, the new ASC provision offers the latest sensory-friendly changeable lighting in order to create an autism-friendly learning environment. Areas within the unit have been developed to support the different learning styles and sensory needs of the individual pupils.

Bluebird also offers smaller class sizes with high staff ratios, in which students can thrive following their own individualised learning pathway, supported by the specialist staff.

The learning spaces have been designed to enable pupils to work in an environment that is comfortable for them and takes into consideration their sensory needs.

All pupils will have the opportunity to work with the school’s speech and language therapist with a focus on social communication, including listening and understanding and expressive communication. There will also be programmes to develop skills to engage and work others and develop positive relationships.

While set within Olsen House School, the unit has its own separate entrance and outside space for pupils.

Head teacher Alison Ford said: “Specialist staff will be working in Bluebird. This is a new exciting addition at the school and has been developed to meet the needs of pupils who may have a primary diagnosis of ASC alongside other diagnosis including ADHD, dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia and sensory processing disorders.”
