Fernways will provide places for up to 50 children across Key Stages 2, 3 and 4, including those for whom mainstream schools have not been able to meet their educational needs. The school’s interior and external facilities have been specifically designed to create the best possible learning environment for young people with autism.
"I am a passionate educator of all things numerical! I have been teaching for six years since career changing from working in the financial services industry. In the last four years, I have taught in an ‘Outstanding’ special school for children with moderate learning difficulties, primarily autism spectrum conditions.
My approach to teaching is child centered, focussing on supporting needs whilst developing a mind-set and confidence which allows them to not only thrive but allows them to enjoy mathematics. I see it as crucial for learning to be linked to real-life skills with a clear focus on preparation for adulthood through the practical applications of mathematics.
Aside from my core teaching, I am highly experienced in data and assessment, process efficiency and have a keen interest in teaching and learning with a specific focus on how cognitive science research can be used to support pupils with additional needs.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and long-distance running. Since taking up running in 2015, I have run over 30 marathons including some races which were over 100 miles long."
Through close partnerships with families, professionals and the wider community, Fernways School will ensure that all children who attend the school meet their full potential.
