Bolton,UK – Two specialist units are to be created at two primary schools in the city.

St Teresa’s RC Primary School in Little Lever and Blackrod Church School are to develop a self-contained Autistic Spectrum Disorder unit.

A Bolton Council spokesman said:

“Some of these pupils find the environment of a mainstream school so challenging that Bolton Council has to arrange schooling for them outside of the borough, even though they could access mainstream education with professional support and help and access to an ASD friendly area within school.”

The specialist units will be in place from September with each unit teaching between six to eight children.

An autism unit for secondary school children is already in place at Bolton St Catherine’s Academy.

The schools will receive £10,000 per place plus top up funding per pupil of £12,899.
