Im rasing money for a small unquie school called Breckenbrough, its a school that supports boys with ASD and other complex needs. Ive Worked for Breckenbrough for nearly 5 years and everyday is a new experince which i absoulety love. We are a charity based school and have a lot of boys come to us from all over england
The boys and staff at this school are amazing and do amazing things everyday and they deserve to be supported.
Breckenbrough is a Non-Maintained Special School (NMSS) approved by the Secretary of State. We offer day and residential placements for boys with a range of complex needs, including Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC), Asperger’s Syndrome (AS), Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA), Tourette’s Syndrome (TS) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder ADHD).
Like our students, Breckenbrough is unique; offering a bespoke, special school approach in delivering the national curriculum. We pride ourselves in being a ‘specialist’ school, providing a nurturing, supportive and low stress environment to help our students learn to manage their behaviours and make social and academic progress. We aim to support our students to achieve two key goals during their time here:
To be themselves, aspire and be successful.
To develop strategies and coping mechanisms to move towards a level of self-actualisation in order to thrive in the neurotypical world. Our Quaker ethos underpins all we aspire to build in our students: respect, tolerance, equality, understanding and forgiveness. We deliberately avoid punishment and forced discipline, believing that resolution of conflict can come about through behaviour modeling and restorative justice. We and the eight other Quaker schools operate using a similar ethos and come together through the Friends School Council.
Our students are well supported by our experienced and committed team. Each student works alongside a core group of professionals, which includes an academic mentor and a keyworker whose responsibility is to ensure that the students’ needs are met, their development is planned and monitored and their outcomes are celebrated and reported to parents and professionals. In addition, we have a full-time psychologist onsite and work in partnership with Future Steps, a local Occupational Therapy provider who may also form part of the core group. These core groups are instrumental in supporting students in working towards achieving the two key goals during their time at Breckenbrough. “From the website simon the headteacher”
