Autism Awareness Day

Next week is Autism Awareness Week at Harris Primary Academy Crystal Palace. The children will be participating in assemblies, activities, discussions and PSHE lessons in class throughout the week to raise awareness and understanding of Autism.  This is in conjunction with activities suggested by the National Autistic Society (NAS).  

On Wednesday, 26th April,  we want all the children and staff to dress up in pink and purple clothing or as their special interest!  Many autistic people have special interests. They are often experts in those interests, which can be anything from art to trains to computer games!  We want to celebrate this wonderful aspect of Autism by dressing up in our special interest

As many of you will be aware, we work closely with pupils, parents and professionals to support pupils with Autism at Harris Primary Academy Crystal Palace and ensure that all members of staff have ongoing training on Autism. 

You can visit http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-39324183 and see how Sesame Street have introduced a character called Julia who has autism.

We kindly ask, that children who dress up, donate a £1.  All funds raised will go towards setting up a sensory room in school.

Please do not hesitate to come and see me, or any member of the Inclusion team if you have any questions about Autism Awareness Week.
