About the School
SAIL (Salisbury Academy for
Inspirational Learning) is a newly commissioned day specialist provider of
education in Salisbury, Wiltshire. This new Academy will be a school that
offers full time special education, care and therapeutic support to vulnerable
children and young people with Education and Healthcare Plans. SAIL will be
welcoming and working with a neuro diverse population of up to 150 children
aged between 4-19 with a primary diagnosis of autism or a SEMH (social,
emotional, mental health) profile.
Our substantive premises is
currently being converted to specifically meet the needs of its neuro diverse
population. Meanwhile, the design of the building and SAIL’s curriculum will
ensure that, where appropriate, pupils who are different ages or have different
diagnosis are able to be educated and cared for separately. There will be
different specialist environments within the buildings e.g., appropriate to the
needs of 4-6 years olds (primary classrooms and play equipment) and post 16
pupils (‘life skills’ –independent areas) that ensure the curriculum meets the
needs of different identified cohorts. The school will be effectively ‘zoned’
so that whilst all can have access to all areas, there is no unnecessary mixing
of ages or populations and that all transitions are carefully managed to meet
SAIL’s aim is to build safe
independent lives for the autistic and SEMH population through a process of
understanding, support, and enablement. To achieve this goal the school will
look at the unique impact autism and social, emotional, and mental health
experiences has on the individual child. From this we aim as a school to
personalise the child’s curriculum, care, and therapeutic package to ensure
every child achieves and experiences success and independence.
