Forfar Academy
The Forfar Academy Autism Base is a secondary provision within the Angus area which caters for pupils with severe and complex autism. Autism is a life long condition which affects a person ability to interact with the world around them. Providing lots of experiential and practical tasks, such as gardening, cooking and social activities, is valuable as it allows them to understand their environment in a more meaningful way and provides them with practical life skills for adulthood. Angus council will shortly be laying a rubber surface in the playground which will make it a safe useable space for these pupils and at the moment we are fundraising to buy equipment for this area. Currently the school has provided gardening equipment through this fundraising and we will be selling tablet at the Christmas café to raise more money. We have also just been given £250 from the Forfar Roof Truss Company to buy an outside table that can seat up to 10 people plus a space for at least one wheelchair. To provide more practical and sensory experiences for these children we are now looking at building a sensory garden and I am writing to ask if there is anyway you would be able to help us with this. The main pieces of equipment we require for this are planters and compost. Having this equipment would increase the pupils access to the outside area and provide practical and sensory experiences children on the autistic spectrum require. It would also increase the quality of life of these pupils and increase their opportunities for learning. If you can help even in a small way it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading this letter.
