East Park School provides education for children and young people between the ages of 5 and 18, with complex additional support needs. All pupils have a significant learning difficulty coupled with other potential barriers to learning including physical disability, sensory impairment, ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), Attachment disorder, Autism and challenging behaviour.

A high proportion of the pupils are on the autistic spectrum and require specialist environments and strategies in order to access a rich and purposeful curriculum. East Park provides comprehensive learning environments and opportunities for this group of pupils through:

  • Personal support plans
  • Individual and group teaching and learning
  • Elaborated curriculum based on the Curriculum for Excellence
  • Outdoor learning activities
  • Links with colleges and other schools
  • Specialised resources and equipment
  • Use of community facilities and amenities

Many are non-verbal communicators, a significant number require personal care, the majority have no sense of danger, and all require a high staff ratio to enable them to successfully access the full curriculum and the community.
