Welcome to our School
We are a purpose built school set in its own grounds in the Goldings area of Northampton. Our accommodation offers a friendly environment and provides many modern facilities for our pupils. Facilities include our fully equipped music and drama studio, a sensory room, a hydrotherapy pool and an interactive classroom called the ‘Clubhouse’ which all provide the latest in visual and sensory stimulation. This state of the art technology supports the whole curriculum and provides pupils with opportunities to control their environment.
GSSC provides specialist teaching for pupils within the Autistic Spectrum using TEACCH principles. The multisensory impaired provision provides appropriate specialised learning environments that minimise the effects of dual impairment and maximise the opportunities for learning and consider the impact of the environment on the learning of the HI/VI pupil. Curriculum delivery uses specialised HI/VI techniques which focus on the development of communication and self-help skills. Technological aids and a range of communication methods are used. These include adapted body signing, objects of reference, raised Moon text and POPAT reading techniques. The enhanced curriculum includes specialist learning programmes, independence and therapies such as Physiotherapy and Speech and language delivered under instruction from the therapists.
The school has a policy of total communication so that every child’s individual communication skills are recognised as an integral part of their educational life. Alternative and Augmentative Communication methods including the use of technologies are a strong feature of the school.
