The Scott Centre
The Scott Centre is a Special Support facility funded by the Local Authority for students of mainstream ability who have assessed social and communication needs (Autistic Spectrum Condition/semantic pragmatic disorder). All students must have a statement of Special Educational Need or an Education and Health Care Plan in order to have a named place at this facility.
The Centre enables students to receive additional support whilst attending mainstream classes with their peers. Inclusion into the mainstream is a gradual process but students are expected to spend over 50% of their time integrated into mainstream classes. The facility offers a supportive environment providing therapeutic interventions designed to address the individual needs of students.
The Centre is open before and after school and there is a breakfast club available to students. Centre staff work closely with parents/carers and subject staff to ensure the individual needs of students are met.
The Academy has been accredited for the seventh year with 'The West Sussex Autism Aware' Award.
