Who we are
The Pathways Programme is a separate department of Francis Barber which works exclusively with pupils with special educational needs and have an EHCP who require a high level of support. These are pupils with an Autistic Spectrum Disorder and / or Complex Needs. These pupils require a great deal of individual attention and programmes based on their individual needs. Opportunities are provided for pupils to socialise together with the help from members of staff.
What we do
The Pathways programme provides short term provision for these pupils whilst the local authority seek an appropriate permanent placement. Referrals to the Pathways programme include pupils who are permanently excluded from mainstream or special schools or pupils with an EHCP who have moved into the area or who do not have a school place. These referrals come from Wandsworth’s Special Needs Assessment Section (SNAS).
