Maidenbower Junior School is a mainstream primary school  which in addition has a Special Support Centre (SSC) for pupils with Autism.

What we do:

We specifically support children with an Educational Health Care Plan where the main diagnosis is Autism.

We are a dedicated team, with a range of specialised training and expertise, who provide a supportive, nurturing and happy environment within the Specialist support centre.

Individual programmes of work are devised by the SSC staff, with reference to additional advice from other professionals, in order to address the targets on each pupil’s Educational Health Care Plan. We liaise closely with parents, to ensure the needs of every child are met.
