The Achievement Studio (TAS) at Southfields Academy

The Achievement Studio (TAS) is a supportive resource base for students aged 11-19 who have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP).  

The primary areas of Special Educational Needs (SEN), as detailed in the EHCP or Statement will be for:

Speech, Language Communication Needs
And / or
Autistic Spectrum Disorders

The resource base is located in the heart of the school where it is easily accessible to all TAS students but provides them with their own space which has been designed to support the development of their specific needs.

Students are expected to attend approximately 90% of mainstream lessons.  The students are also part of a mainstream tutor group.  They prioritise students’ core subjects for in-class support from a Teaching Assistant (T.A.) who is attached to the base, and students will also receive T.A. support for some foundation subjects.  The base staff frequently liaise with teaching staff across the school in order to ensure that teachers in the mainstream are aware of the needs of the TAS students and the teaching strategies they can use in the mainstream classroom to support TAS students.
