The Learning Space (SRP)

This area provides support for students with Social Communication Difficulty and/or Autism.  This specialised learning environment has dedicated spaces for interventions and therapies as well as kitchen facilities and a garden.  These enable students to find the space to feel secure and be supported appropriately by our expert staff.


Mission Statement

The child is at the centre of our philosophy to create a safe, positive and effective learning environment in which all members of our community are respected. We have high expectations of students' development. We believe that effective communication, praise, celebration of success and quality teaching and learning will enable each individual to reach their full potential.


To be named to the SRP at Waldegrave by the Achieving for Children, students must have an EHCP with primary need of Social Communications Difficulty and or Autism. We currently have 8 places in our SRP.


We run a range of interventions including: Social Thinking, Numeracy, Literacy & Organisation. SEND info report 2021-2022

KS3 & KS4

Despite participating in most subjects in KS3, our students typically work on a flexible pathway building on core subjects and those of particular interest/skill with a vision to continue with those at KS4. Flexible pathway is again followed at KS4 participating in a lighter load of GCSE’s balanced with incorporation of practical skills.


We are very proud of our previous students from the SRP as they have all gone on to post 16 studies completing courses at various colleges.

Guilford College - Entry Level Studies

West Thames College - Performing Arts

Westminster Kingsway - Media

Esher College - Art and Design

Capel Manor - Animal Studies

Richmond College - Travel and Tourism


Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do if I have a child who might be suitable for the SRP?

Typically the first step would be to attend a school tour during open mornings with a slot to speak to the SRP manager or the SENCO. 

What does my child need in order to be named to the SRP?

To be named to the SRP the student must have a diagnosis of ASD or SLCN and an EHCP. 

How much support do the students receive in the SRP?

The support the students in the SRP receive is down to the funding by AFC. Each student gets their share of the support available, roughly 1/8 as there are 8 places in the provision. 

Do they attend all lessons in the SRP?

They tend to attend most mainstream lessons (some with support depending on their strengths or challenges) and usually spend 3-4 lessons each week in the provision for interventions as indicated in the EHCP. 

Are the core lessons taught in small classes?

Maths, English and the Sciences are not taught in small groups but needs in these areas may also be addressed through interventions within the SRP (in addition to mainstream lessons).
