Social Arts for Education is a study centre for children who have been withdrawn from mainstream school due to bullying and/or autism and other related conditions. Students generally, have additional needs due to autism, anxiety disorders, fear of social situations and extreme shyness.
We now offer after school club services available to SAFE and non-SAFE students. Lead by our in-house occupational therapist, the club provides small group play and socialising activities such as sensory circuits, arts and crafts, Wii and Playstation games, pool and snooker, music and animal therapy. Open from 3pm and finishing at 5pm, the club costs £6 per hour. Hot snacks included in the price and pick ups from nearby schools may be optional.
Our teaching methods and environment in which we teach reflect the SPELL framework constructed by the National Autistic Society. The framework, which stands for Structure, Positive Expectations and Attitudes, Empathy, Low Arousal and Links, encourages an environment where children are at ease, understood by others and are open to a variation of life opportunities.
