Over the Easter break, the specialist sensory lighting, equipment and sound system for our soft play was installed. This week our young people have loved exploring the new waterless rainbow and hurricane bubble tubes, vibrating plinth and multi-coloured fibre optic strands, all of which can be controlled with accessible switches. We even have mood lighting for the whole of soft play, which changes the colour of the ball pit. We have seen so much visual attention, curiosity, persistence and cause and effect being developed this week, all in an incredibly engaging, stimulating and fun environment…that makes us as happy as the pupils are in these photos!

Yesterday lunchtime chess club started at Birch Wood Vale for students from BWV, Ashton House and Birch Wood College. The club got off to a great start with over 16 young people attending. Some students had never played chess before and were beginning to learn the names of the pieces, the moves and the rules of the game. Others had played before and enjoyed the challenge of a competitive game. Great fun was had by everyone! See MoreSee Less

On Friday 22nd March we finished celebrating Autism Acceptance Week, with our ‘Spectrum of Colour’ day.

As part of the day’s celebrations, all our students from Grange Drive, Birch Wood Vale, Ashton House and Birch Wood College came together to take part in a ‘Colour Walk’.

Each corridor at Grange Drive had a different theme that students could interact with:

🫧🫧🫧 Let stereotypes float away 🫧🫧🫧
🥁🥁🥁 Bang out judgement 🥁🥁🥁
❤️🧡💛 Reveal your true colours 💚💙💜 💡💡💡Let your individuality shine through 💡💡💡

What an amazing opportunity for all our sites to all come together and celebrate Autism and neurodiversity! ♾️🌈

“Keep up the good work, excellent school.”

“The teachers are an asset to my son and others, thank you.”

“I am extremely happy with the progress my daughter is making – she has come on in leaps and bounds. I feel Birch Wood Vale is tailor made for her needs.”

“I am so happy with how my son has progressed in the school setting over a short period of time. A big ‘thank you’ for everyone’s help and especially for their exceptional support. I know that he will blossom throughout the school setting. Thanks again!”

“The primary school said under no circumstances could he go back after Christmas. Sending him to Birch Wood is the best thing I ever did, I couldn’t be more pleased. He is calmer, telling me about things he enjoys at school. Everybody has noticed such a big change in him, all of my family appreciate everything you are doing, it has changed our lives.”

“My son is really happy, he’s started playing again and back to the old child. Everything is really positive and he is much happier when he comes home. The unit has been really positive for him”

“I am happy with the new assessment and tracking system. My son seems very happy at school and appears to be making good progress. The teachers seemed very knowledgeable about my son’s abilities and when to push him. I would like to comment on his next IEP before it is finalised.”

“The provision has been outstanding in every way and the staff are brilliant with strategies to ensure progress is made in all areas of my son’s school life. We couldn’t ask for anything more!”

“I was very impressed with how positive ad enthusiastic all staff were tonight (as always). Especially impressed with all the efficient, colour coded information on my sons progress and it’s equivalent grade in GCSE.”
