Autism Accreditation would like to celebrate the fantastic commitment and effort that Hertfordshire Council has undertaken to sign up and achieve accreditation in over 68% of its SEN schools. This has been a six-year county-wide initiative which has resulted in the identification of good autism practice within the county along with continuous developments for the provisions.

One school (Greenside School) also received the Autism Excellence Award 2016 for its innovative approach to vocational learning: "Following the accreditation process, the school's understanding of autism and individual pupils has enabled teaching staff to respond and plan appropriately for pupils with ASD. We have now developed our own assessment tool called CAPPS to focus on communication and personal and social development."
