Drumbeat School and ASD Services is a community-maintained special needs school in the London Borough of Lewisham. We are committed to providing the best education. Our school community is passionate and create innovative learning opportunities to promote holistic development. There is a range of expertise throughout this school, from our highly skilled teachers and teaching assistants to a range of teams and leaders. Together, we ensure every child’s needs are met. Our teachers lead their class team through shared goals which are informed by parents, families, NHS Therapists, CAMHS professionals, and the Multi-agency Support Team. We place this vision at the heart of an integrated provision that values the power of partnerships and collaboration.
We have expanded our provision so we are now a three school site, Downham (BR1), Brockley (SE4) and Turnham (SE4).
We are also working with key organisations like University College London where we have delivered a lecture for students studying autism and collaborating in key research projects that will inform practice internationally. We work with Challenge Partners and are able to advise for best practice in schools nationally. This year we have supported schools in Northern Ireland and Sweden where we have trained staff to support in the setting up of SEN provisions.
Our outreach team provide invaluable training and advice for the mainstream schools and parents in Lewisham through workshops, podcasts and group training.
We aim to promote an inclusive society that recognises the talents of our amazing children and young people.
