The ASC (Autism Spectrum Condition) Hub is a local authority maintained provision within Kelvin Hall School, which supports pupils with an EHCP (Education and Health Care Plan) related to an Autistic Spectrum Diagnosis, in accessing mainstream school.
The Hub is an annex of the main building with its own entrance, direct access to the main school and the dining hall; it is also separate from the main school. The Hub has two small classrooms, each with a quiet study room attached and a separate outside area. There is also a sensory room with giant bean bags, mood lighting, a chalk wall and optional music via an iPad. There will be a maximum of 8 pupils in a class (15 total within the Hub).
Students in the Hub follow a mainstream curriculum, initially delivered in the Hub as a mixture of taught lessons and supported independent work. Teachers from the main school oversee the students’ work and provide feedback on work submitted via Google Classroom. Some teachers deliver mini-lessons, or oversee projects in the Hub. As students grow more confident and resilient, they are supported in accessing lessons on the main site; your child will have an individual plan for increasing their time in the main school.
ASC Hub Admissions
For the purpose of admissions, the ASC Hub at Kelvin Hall School is a local authority maintained provision. All admissions are handled by the Local Authority after formal consultation with the Headteacher at Kelvin Hall School.
All places for the ASC Hub are commissioned through the Local Authority. Students attending the ASC Hub will have an EHC Plan and therefore will have undergone extensive assessment before entering the school through the Hub.
