The Rainbow Rooms supporting pupils

with ASD and SLI

Webster Primary School has been commissioned by Manchester Local Authority to have a specialist resourced provision for seven children who have a diagnosis of ASD, known as the Rainbow Rooms. We are proud to include pupils with Autistic Spectrum Disorder and Specific Language Impairment in our Resource Provision.  The Rainbow Rooms opened in September 2011 and is part of our whole school community.

Although the school is responsible for the teaching and learning of these seven children, it does not control the admission of places to the provision. Applying for a place at Webster Primary School through Manchester City Council Admissions team does not enable your child to access the Resource Provision. Children can only attend the Rainbow Rooms and be supported by specialist staff if they have an Education, Health, and Care Plan and a Resource Provision placement is deemed appropriate for your child through the SEND team at Manchester City Council, not directly to the school. These decisions are made by the Local Authority which has a multi-agency panel who meet to agree placements in the resourced mainstream provisions in Manchester.

Once allocated a place in the Resourced Provision, children become full members of the school. Children who are placed within the Rainbow Rooms need to be able to access their mainstream classroom independently for around half of their weekly timetable, completing their learning without any additional adult support. For the other half of the week, children are supported in small groups by a specialist teacher and two teaching assistants, who support the staff in school and pupils in the Resourced Provision when they access their mainstream classroom.
