Post 11 Autistic Centre
Welcome to Jarrow School Post 11 Autistic Centre. We are a specialist unit attached to Jarrow School for secondary aged students who have a diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorder. Our students are referred from both special and mainstream schools in South Tyneside, as well as coming through our feeder primary school (Fellgate Autistic Unit).
The Centre is able to access the school's resources, specialist teachers and bases where appropriate. Students can be integrated within some mainstream lessons, where suitable, with support from the Centre staff.
The Centre has a range of experienced staff working successfully to form a multi-disciplinary team.
The Centre follows the National Curriculum, adapting and revisiting where appropriate, to meet the needs of our students. We are committed to provide a highly structured environment reducing anxieties that any individual student may experience. Class sizes are small and are grouped according to compatibility which includes age, behaviour and ability.
We operate an open door policy within the Centre. However, we do ask that parents and professionals wishing to visit make an appointment at a mutually convenient time.
