The building will have 10 classrooms and will be run by staff at Newfield Specialist School. It is expected to offer a number of new places for pupils with autism and incorporate the existing pupils that are already at the school.​

Robertson has delivered a special programme of community engagement for this project. We have arranged site visits that suit the varying needs of all pupils, so that they can take part in the Robertson Reporters initiative, publishing their artwork and construction progress updates in a newsletter.

We also took part in a 4D sensory session, using video projection of the site, construction materials and other resources to enrich their learning. This is an important part of involving them in the process of getting a new school.
