Additional support for your child

The staff from the Inclusion Team at Gateacre can't wait to meet you all. We understand that this years primary transition hasn't been the same as usual. 

We haven't been able to invite you into school to meet you but we have been speaking to your primary school teachers and know quite a lot about you already and any additional needs you have. 

At Gateacre we have lots of interventions to help you and when school is allowed to open and we can meet you properly we will make sure you get the help you need. This could be:

  • Literacy Intervention
  • Numeracy Intervention
  • Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) Intervention
  • 5 Minute Timeout Card
  • LSA Support

Sound Walk

Moving to secondary school is a huge moment in any young person’s life. A new school means a new environment, usually larger in size, with more complex demands and accompanied by a series of unfamiliar and potentially bewildering sounds.

For a young person with autism this transition can often be particularly challenging. Support and preparation for transition can result in a better outcome.

The videos below will support young people with autism during transition to high school by enabling them to familiarise themselves with the types of new sounds they should expect to hear, prior to arrival in the new environment.

These videos has been designed to help you get used to the different sounds you'll hear around the school. Click on each video to hear sounds from that part of the school. It's best to use headphones to get the most accurate idea of what it's like being in those places.
