Phoenix Outreach Service
The POS consists of six specialist advisory teachers with experience and expertise in supporting pupils with a diagnosis of ASD. Our vision as a service is to provide effective support for pupils with autism in mainstream schools across the borough of Tower Hamlets. We see Phoenix School as a centre of excellence for supporting pupils with ASD of all ages. Through the Phoenix Outreach Service, we aim to share this excellent practice with mainstream schools, in order to support successful inclusion of pupils with ASD in their school settings.
We work with pupils with autism from the age of 3 to 19 in mainstream, maintained school settings. We provide training for key staff, and for organisations within the community. We run termly parents’ evenings and a programme of parent workshops and courses throughout the year, hosted by mainstream schools.
The Phoenix Outreach Service (POS) exists to support the inclusion of children with a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in mainstream schools.
