Independent special school, Oakham Shires School, in Rutland, receives gold standard from Outcomes First Group





A school for autistic pupils has been awarded a gold standard.

Oakham Shires School, an independent special school, in Uppingham Road, received the recognition for its use of Ask, Accept, Develop (AAD).

The school is part of a wider group of specialist schools which introduced AAD to strengthen its provision of care, education and clinical services for pupils with autism.

The strategy recognises that despite underlying shared traits, autistic individuals are vastly different from one another.

Part of Options Autism group, Oakham Shires School is open to pupils aged 11 to 18, and received the accreditation from the Outcomes First Group, a company which provides education and care services.

Michelle Jordan, acting headteacher, said the school was ‘very proud’ of the recognition.

“As a school, we are very committed to not only ensuring the best outcomes for our pupils, but to involve them in the choices made along their journey,” she said.
