Arbour House School

Arbour House School is a specialist independent school based in Weymouth Dorset, offering flexible education for up to 38 weeks per year. The school offers a bespoke provision to children and young people aged 6 to 16 years who have complex needs including learning disabilities and/or autism and who may also present with behaviours of concern. Arbour House School will be using the TEACCH system of structured teaching with structure in the organisation of the day and the layout of all environments including classrooms and work. Timetabling the day and individual work/activity systems outline what is expected; routines provide a predictable sequence of events; using visual organisation of materials helps define and make clear expectations. This structured approach is personalised to support each individual’s needs and enhance personal development to enable children to access wider educational settings, community and employment.
