Orchard is a Specialist County Provision within Fred Nicholson School for 19 pupils with an Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Complex Needs. These pupils’ needs cannot be met within other specialist or mainstream schools within Norfolk. Orchard pupils present with ‘spiky’ profiles of strengths. All pupils within Orchard will have complex needs including a learning need alongside their ASD. Children may also have behaviour which can challenge those around them and could hinder their access to education, meaning they may have struggled to be successful in an alternative provision from other provisions. The work of Orchard is accredited by the National Autistic Society, we are proud to be the only school in Norfolk to achieve this level of specialism. We were reaccredited in June 2019.
