At Gowerton, support is given to pupils with a range of Additional Learning Needs.
We ensure that all pupils with Additional Needs receive a fully Inclusive, relevant and balanced curriculum which is differentiated to suit their needs and aptitudes.
Pupils are encouraged to develop their full potential through well co-ordinated teaching and learning programmes involving nurturing as well as specialist person centred support and provision.
The school is home to a Specialist Teaching Facility (or STF) for students with high-functioning autism and other autism spectrum conditions. Here, they are supported and educated by a team of dedicated staff and integrated into the mainstream life of the school as much as possible. We are keen to offer a warm welcome to our students and we aim to make the transition to the STF at Gowerton as smooth as possible.
Once pupils are offered a place by the local authority, we arrange a bespoke transition package, including visits for pupils and their parents or carers to meet with us and each other.
