A message from Emma Clarke (teacher in charge)
Westover Green School's facility for Autistic children was officially opened on 30th January 2018 by the Mayor and Mayoress of Bridgwater, Councillor and Mrs Granter.
The centre can cater for 14 children and has a sensory room, calm room, outdoor play area, two classrooms and a kitchen area.
Children in the Autism Centre can access the mainstream classes for lessons but also receive specialised support in a calm setting when necessary.
Executive headteacher, at the time, Mrs Heather Good said: “We are absolutely delighted with this new autism centre and this is wonderful news for local children. We have a wonderful, happy community and this new centre and its staff are a superb addition.”
If your child has an ECHP and you would like to know more please phone the school and ask for Mrs Clarke our teacher in charge of the Autism Centre or Mrs Norman the school's SENCo.
