Welcome to the Communication and Interaction Resourced Provision

The Resourced Provision at Meadstead Primary Academy was opened in January 2000. The Resourced Provision offers education for primary aged pupils who have Communication and Interaction Needs. We have allocated spaces for ten pupils.

At Meadstead Primary Academy CIRP (Communication and Interaction Resourced Provision) we aim to:

• create a safe and secure environment

• provide high quality education based on the needs of the child

• advance the education of children with autism and encourage them to reach their full potential

• provide a broad and balanced curriculum

• offer a high level of experienced support in order that each pupil can be included into the school community and activities as far as they are able to

• enable our children to begin to work towards an independent life


  • developing and encouraging children's learning by using their strengths and favourite things both as an incentive and as a reward
  • using play as an essential part of children's learning through both adult and child led activities, building trust and developing social and emotional learning 
  • encouraging independent communication at every opportunity, providing opportunities to make choices and requests throughout each day.  We use P.E.C.S (Picture Exchange Communication System) and aspects of T.E.A.C.C.H as aids to communication.
  • providing many and varied opportunities for the children to learn life skills and independence both in their personal life and in their learning

Christmas is over for another year as we welcome 2018!  We are looking forward to this next half term; working hard, playing hard and with some class trips to different places including a visit to Yorvik as soon as this week for some children.

Our Year 6 pupils are looking forward to their residential visit to Kingswood during the last week of this half term.  They are expecting lots of mud!  We know they'll have a great time.

We have been working hard to learn the names of many different shapes, 2-D and 3-D.  We have been working with shapes to build and to make pictures.  We hope you like our work.
