The Learning about Autism Programme focuses on a whole school approach.  You can apply for your school award by completing the form below, please ensure that:

  • all teaching staff have completed the teacher certification scheme;
  • all learning support staff have successfully completed the LSA certification scheme;
  • all other support staff (including admin staff and governors) have completed the ‘Autism Aware’ scheme;
  • the majority of KS2 pupils must have signed the Autism Superhero Charter;

We are able to check the completion rates for your setting.  When most or all of your school have completed the scheme we will issue your certificate and enter your setting onto our database.
