Pwll Primary School Autism Childrens Minibus


The Project will make a huge difference to the pupils of Pwll Autism Teaching facility,as our facility is part of a main stream primary school. The Children’s ages range from 3-11 yrs with varying levels of autism that is supported by 10 staff members

Our goals:

  • To Promote inclusion where possible, assisting to promote many life skills. As part of our highly specialised and modified curriculum we a constantly aiming to help develop the children's life skills across many settings. One of the ways in which we work on these skills is during weekly shopping trips where the children are taught to locate items on the shelves, paying for their shopping and packing their bags that is something that is sometimes taken for granted.
  • To Give our Autistic Children as many opportunities in the community as possible. We live in a lovely area with many exciting opportunities including a lovely beach, forest walks and wildlife centres. Many of our children don't experience these activities very often due to the level of support that they require to access these activities safely.
  • To enable us to go on visits as a whole facility, teaching the children many skills as well as accessing specialist facilities in different settings such as sensory room. Many of our children have very differing sensory needs and really benefit from spending time in a sensory room and find these sessions highly motivating. As we are a part of a small school our facilities are very minimal, meaning we require the use of certain facilities that are housed in other settings.
£25k project Currently ranked 4 in Health, Disability and Social Care

How we will achieve our goals

It would enable the children to to be able to access more activities in the local community teaching them valuable life skills and becoming more socially involved in the local community

Where the money will go

A large part of our school ethos is to promote inclusion within the community where possible. Many of our school trips /activities are with main stream pupils of similar ages. The new minibus would teach the children within the facility many life skills but also help main stream pupils in developing their understanding of additional learning need
