Autism Accreditation Award
Merryfields School has been recognised for good autism practice.
We have been awarded Autism Accreditation by The National Autistic Society, the UK’s leading charity for people on the autism spectrum and their families. The award was given in recognition of our good autism practice.
Autism Accreditation is an autism-specific quality assurance programme. It was set up in 1992 to improve the support available to autistic people in organisations throughout the UK and across the world, including local authorities, NHS trusts, education authorities, local autism societies and private companies. To gain accreditation, organisations have to meet a standard of excellence and follow a framework for continuous self-examination and development. The National Autistic Society’s Autism Accreditation programme was launched over 20 years ago and sets extremely high standards, which we have worked incredibly hard to meet.
