Excellence without Compromise
SEND at Kings Road Primary School
At Kings Road Primary School, we firmly believe that all children have the right to an education that has high expectations, fulfils their needs and enables them to reach their full potential in a safe and nurturing environment for learning. We believe quality first teaching gives every child the life chances they deserve and we work hard to provide a caring, stimulating and inclusive environment in which they can flourish.
We pride ourselves on being an inclusive school, creating a sense of community and belonging which values the abilities and achievements of all of our pupils and which is based upon the school’s visions and values.
Kings Road Primary School aims to promote and create a caring and positive environment that allows all children to develop physically, educationally, emotionally, socially and spiritually.
Not all children will need extra support with their learning but the progress of all children at Kings Road is monitored closely to ensure support is provided where necessary and that early identification enables children to make the best possible progress.

At the AET, we believe that autism is a difference not a deficit.
We want to promote wider understanding that autistic people have strengths and differences in three key areas of development.
Recognising and understanding these differences leads to better support being available for autistic children and young people in education.
Key to this understanding is recognising that the autistic spectrum is a not a single line from low to high; it is a complex combination of many overlapping characteristics.
While there may be some shared characteristics, every autistic person is unique, with their own strengths, differences and needs.
We champion a world where being different is something to be celebrated and where all autistic learners experience a positive education that supports their wellbeing.
We’d love for you to do the same.
Social stories are an evidence-based intervention for individuals with autism or social communication difficulties, no matter what their age. Research shows that social stories really do make a difference to explaining why things happen by using visuals (pictures) and words to support the person in knowing what it going to happen and what to expect with something that they find tricky. These need to be shared with your child / young person multiple times for the message to be embedded for them.
The site is American, so there will be reference to things which are not appropriate for life in the UK. It is worth checking the site regularly as more social stories will be added over time.
The Autism Little Learners social stories are also listed specific to school, home, community, and COVID which may help you to locate what you need.
