Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

We are an Enhanced Mainstream School (EMS) for Communication & Interaction.


The Hub

The ASD Hub at Rosebrook Primary School is an authority-funded provision for children from 4 to 11 with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

The provision was established to accept pupils from September 2009.

It is able to offer 5 full time places at KS1 and 5 at KS2.

Admission to the hub is by application only via a moderating group.

Pupils admitted are on the roll of Rosebrook Primary School.

A panel of relevant school staff and other professionals involved will meet termly to consider progress of the pupils on roll with a view to confirming the appropriateness of the place or recommending consideration be given to alternative provision.  Children have dedicated, well-resourced ASD-friendly classrooms and access to appropriate mainstream provision depending upon the needs of the individual child.



If children reside out of the catchment area of the school, pupils will be transported to and from Rosebrook free of charge.


Parents as Partners

We acknowledge that parents are the children’s first teachers and hold invaluable knowledge and skills. We aim to work in close partnership with parents. Parents are welcome. For all children, a home school book will operate. The staffing ratio is at least 2 adults per 5 children. All staff are experienced and hold specialist qualifications.

EarlyBird is for parents whose child has received a diagnosis of an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and is of pre-school age (not yet of statutory school age).The programme aims to support parents in the period between diagnosis and school placement, empowering and helping them facilitate their child’s social communication and appropriate behaviour in their natural environment. It also helps parents to establish good practice in handling their child at an early age, so as to pre-empt the development of inappropriate behaviours. For more information see NAS.

EarlyBird Plus

EarlyBird Plus is for parents whose child has received a later diagnosis of an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and is aged 4-8 and in Early Years or Key Stage One provision. The programme addresses the needs of both home and school settings by training parents/carers together with a professional who is working regularly with their child, the aim being that a child will be given consistent support.
