Spectrum Centre

All students have the right to achieve their maximum academic and social potential.   The SEND and Inclusion policy for Meridian High school and the Spectrum centre seeks to promote this by providing equality of access and opportunity to all areas of the curriculum.   Students are taught in an environment where they receive equal respect and in which their individuality is valued.

At Meridian we believe that all students have learning differences rather than learning difficulties and it is our policy to identify and assess these differences and ensure that learning is supported and differentiated to ensure outstanding progress is made by all students.

The Learning Support Services department also offer a range of support to develop student wellbeing and resilience and the support within the classroom, this includes; drop-in sessions, student assessments, exam support, in class training and observations from the Inclusion and Behaviour Leader, specialist advice/input within the classroom, and a developing Learning Support Services resource base within the LSS and Spectrum centre.

Over the forthcoming year we will be hosting a range of drops in and coffee morning to develop communication and support for teachers, parents and students.  We will also include updates on the website of parent evenings and sessions. 

The information below gives you an overview of the Spectrum and what we offer including a range of documents you may find useful.

The team and I look forward to working with you in the future.

Spectrum Centre

The Spectrum Centre at Meridian High School provides students on the autistic spectrum a safe, calm and inclusive environment in order to support their access to mainstream education.

We have an individualised approach where each student has a personalised timetable and curriculum offer. We offer a life skills based curriculum at both Key Stage 3 and 4. We also provide a high level of support through specialist teachers in the Spectrum Centre and learning mentor support in the mainstream lessons.

All mainstream staff receive training on ASD based approaches, strategies and strong communication between staff means students are supported effectively.

All students are assessed by our speech and language and occupational therapists when the join.   Once assessed, individual intervention programmes are then designed for those that require additional support in these areas. 

There are 30 places available within the Spectrum Centre and students are referred by Croydon’s special educational needs team. Students must have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) with a primary need of ASD.

If you feel your child may benefit from a place in the Spectrum Centre, please feel free to contact us to arrange a visit.

“Since attending the Spectrum Centre I feel that my confidence has been boosted. If I am anxious about something in mainstream the Spectrum staff help to relieve it. I feel they have helped me a lot generally over the last three years.” – Year 10 Student

“Before I attended Spectrum I would never go to mainstream lesson but now with their help I can” – Year 8 Student

“Spectrum has helped me control my emotions and I now have a safe place” – Year 8 Student
