Welcome to the ASD Resourced Provision at Romsey School. It is affectionately known as the Base as it is a home-from-home for pupils on the autistic spectrum who need support to attend mainstream school. Timetables are tailored to individual needs. We support pupils with daily school life and provide other courses of study, activities and trips. If you need any further information please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

“Students who attend the specialist unit achieve well due to the support and expertise of the staff who guide their progress. An example of this includes students who entered the school with low achievement and went on to attain 10 GCSEs with high grades. “
“Having the Base at Romsey School is great because I get supported in lessons, finish homework at school, have somewhere to be at lunch and break and am able to play football after school.” year 10 pupil
The ASD Resourced Provision was established at Romsey School in September 2002 to provide high quality teaching and support for pupils who have been diagnosed with ASD. We recognise that our pupils have a wide range of different special needs and we support them according to those needs.
The Resource has a suite of rooms known as The Base. The Base is used to support learning, as well as being somewhere pupils can return to if they are feeling anxious or stressed and a safe haven at lunch and break times.
The Base comprises a suite of rooms on the ground floor of South Block. It consists of a large room laid out following the approaches recommended within the principles of TEACCH Autism Programme. The main room is divided into three clear zones: a group teaching area, individual work areas and social/relaxation areas.
The kitchen area is used for cooking and life skills lessons. We also have a small separate room which is used as a quiet room and for 1:1 work. There are toilets and a shower room/changing room next to the main room.
We are located at the heart of the school and share South Block with the Learning Support Department.
In 2009 we added a sensory garden with a seating area and a fountain, where pupils are able to relax and help out with the gardening.
We communicate with parents and carers with a home-school folder and by email and phone. This enables us to assist pupils with letters home, reply slips, payments for lunch cards and so on.
