The Marion Centre

The Marion Centre aims to ensure that every child has access to a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum to encourage and enable them to achieve to their fullest potential in a specialist, safe and caring environment, where everyone matters. Through our curriculum, we aim to allow each child to develop and achieve at their level and to develop valuable literacy, numeracy, independence, and social and life skills through fun and engaging activities.

We also aim to promote awareness of Autistic Spectrum Conditions (ASC) throughout the school to enable all students at The Bishop of Llandaff to develop their understanding, awareness and empathy towards others. We provide ongoing training and support for teachers to increase their knowledge and understanding of the needs of young people with ASC.

The Marion Centre is designed to accommodate up to 42 students across the full 11-19 secondary age range, with approximately 6 new students joining in Year 7 every September, until September 2015. All Marion Centre staff are trained, specialist teachers with an SEN qualification, are Team Teach (UK) trained (a positive intervention strategy) and are trained in using the TEACCH approach.

The key stage 3 curriculum has been specifically planned and written to cater for the varied interests, abilities and needs of our students. The skills of thinking, communication, using number and using ICT are embedded within all our schemes of work and enable our students to explore and make sense of their world, make connections, develop their literacy and numeracy skills, and encourage them to communicate their ideas and emotions through a variety of ways. The curriculum is underpinned by ASC strategies to enable each individual to fulfil their potential and prepare them for life. 

All places to The Marion Centre are managed by Cardiff Local Authority. If you are interested in applying for a place, please contact Clair Bridges, from the Autism Central Team.
