Purbeck View School is a residential school specialising in the care and education of students with a diagnosis of autism, or whose difficulties place them on the autistic continuum. Our students often have complex needs, associated learning difficulties and challenging behaviours. Purbeck offers both 38 and 52 week placements for 56 pupils between the ages of 7 and 19 years. For students living close to the school there is flexibility for day provision. Admission can take place at any time during the school year. Purbeck View is a part of the Cambian Group, one of the UK's providers of specialist services in education and care for young people with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). Purbeck View draws upon a programme of specialist education, specialist 24-hour care and a range of clinical and therapeutic inputs, including speech and language therapy, behavioural therapy, occupational therapy, psychiatry and psychology. Multi-disciplinary teams and staff ratios ensure intensive individual support. We offer community-based programmes, vocational training and further education opportunities. Purbeck is located in the south coast town of Swanage, Dorset, giving students access to all the amenities of the local community plus the Purbeck Hills and coastline trails. We do follow the Structure, Positive (approaches and expectations), Empathy, Low arousal, Links (SPELL) framework for students who will benefit from it. Residential respite services are just for their own pupils..
