Mersey Drive Community Primary School

With Foundation Stage & Enhanced ASC Provision

ASD Resourced Provision

Welcome to the Resourced Provision at Mersey Drive Primary School. We are committed to providing high quality education for all our pupils to develop independence and skills for life.

We strive to create a happy, calm and purposeful atmosphere, as we believe this leads to effective learning. We believe passionately in inclusion and believe that a diverse school community is beneficial for everyone.

We work in partnership with parents, health professionals and other agencies to support your child throughout their school career.

Within the Provision we have 2 bases which are named Bridges and Arches. Staff and pupils work across both bases and also spend time in their relevant mainstream classrooms.

Learning takes place using a multi-sensory approach taking into account the children’s very individual needs and level of development. Our pupils follow individual timetables which are designed to suit their needs, strengths and progress.  

Within the provision we have a soft play area, sensory room and small outdoor play area.

We work on social skills, communication skills, thinking skills, motor skills, listening skills, Sensory input and understanding emotions alongside our academic curriculum!

We utilise a variety of strategies and interventions including: TEACCH, Social Stories, Sensory Diets, Jump Ahead, PECS etc.
