Resource Base

Welcome to The Meadow

The Meadow is our new Special Needs and Autism Resource Base here at Easton CE Academy


About The Meadow

Welcome to ‘The Meadow’, a Resource Base supporting 12 lovely pupils ranging from classes Reception to Year 2 who have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) for a primary need of Autism or Speech Language and Communication. Our priority is to ensure that pupils in The Meadow receive a broad, balanced and rewarding curriculum that gives them the skills and knowledge to excel in life and in their Education. The curriculum has been made in a way which will draw out and give priority to the most crucial aspects of the Early Years Foundation Stage and the National Curriculum to give our children knowledge and the means to reach their full potential and independence.


Our context

Our Specialist Resource Base provision opened in January 2024 for 12 children with Education, Health and Care plans (EHCP) with a primary need of Autism or Speech Language and Communication Needs (SLCN). As an inclusive school we have seen this as a fantastic opportunity to provide specialist provision for the children and families of Central Bristol.


Our children

Our resource base provision is best suited to children who are able to access some mainstream learning alongside specialist teaching. Children have access to a high quality school curriculum which has been adapted from the National Curriculum.  Children from The Meadow are very much seen as being integral members of the school community and their provision is designed to be unique to each child, taking into account their own needs and interests. 


The Meadow staffing team are



Mrs McDermott - SENDCO                          Mrs Hasa - Teacher



Ms Bauer                     Ms Aden                    Ms Dhiblawe             Mrs Sultana


Our Curriculum

By incorporating our curriculum , we prioritise the skills that are key to each individual. We break down each of these skills into small steps so that as they are being taught, they enable the children to grasp the skill and use it independently. By combining the individual targets set out in their EHCP and the curriculum, we are able to best support our pupils to success. The curriculum follows classroom-based learning but, also supports sensory differences and access to sensory resources and a weekly Forest School session which is held on site. Due to our tailor-made curriculum, we regularly plan opportunities to enhance their cultural capital by including them in mainstream lessons such as music, PE and trips.

We believe in applying a holistic approach to learning, by working closely with a range of multi- agency professionals to support each child’s curriculum and give the best outcomes for our pupils. These professional partnerships include Educational Psychologists, Sensory Occupational Therapists and Speech and Language Therapists.

We look forward to working alongside all individuals to give the best education and learning space for our pupils so that they are able to thrive and excel in their educational journey.


Applying for places

Places at The Meadow are allocated through the SEND team at Bristol City Council. They need to have an Education, Health and Care plan with a primary need of ASC or Speech Language and Communication Needs SLCN. Unfortunately we are unable to offer provision to children wishing to move from our mainstream classes to the resource base unless they have been offered a place through the LA SEND team. 

Currently we have no places in any of our resource base classes
