Autism Resource

Trinity is home to one of West Berkshire’s specialist resource units; the Autism Resource. The resource caters for students who have an Education and Health Care Plan (EHCP) with Autism as their primary need. It provides students with specialist intervention to access lessons and learning within mainstream school. Students are educated with their peers in classes of around 30 students and begin studying GCSEs, like their peers at Trinity, from the beginning of year 9. Students are part of a mainstream tutor group and house to give them a sense of belonging as valuable members of the school community. 

The resource has three classrooms, a sensory space, a quiet room and a common room with kitchen area. 

Within the resource, there is a dedicated team of staff; A Teacher in Charge, HLTA and a team of Teaching Assistants. The resource supports 15 students across Years 7 to 13. 

The students are supported by the staff to access the curriculum within mainstream lessons. They are also given a variety of supporting interventions within the resource space such as social skills sessions, emotional literacy support and Lego club. Some students attend support with external agencies such as Riding for the Disabled or forest school style sessions. The resource also provides a safe space within the busy life of Trinity at break times and lunchtimes.  

Admission is through the SEN Assessment Team and the SEN Panel. 

We welcome visits to the resource after school. If you would like to discuss the resource with us, or make an appointment to visit, please contact:
