Eagle House School (Mitcham) – our Primary School
Eagle House School (Mitcham) was established in 2004 and occupies two main buildings; Eagle House, a Grade 1 listed building of great historic interest dating back to Sir Walter Raleigh, and a more modern building, Eagle Court, which houses our Early Years Department.
At Eagle House School (Mitcham) we aim to be much more than just a school. Our specialist teaching offers a unique approach to working with children with autism and Asperger syndrome. We provide a holistic education that focuses on developing the global needs of our children, not just their academic skills.
Welcome note from Head of Education for Mitcham
Welcome to Eagle House School (Mitcham). I hope that, in exploring our website, you will feel a sense of how special and unique we are, and why we are so proud of our school community.
We are a small, specialist primary school providing an autism-specific education for children with a primary diagnosis of autism. We support children from all areas of the autism spectrum and what makes us unique as a school, is our expertise and commitment to provide each child with the individual learning they need, supporting them to flourish and reach their full potential.
We have three distinct learning pathways, each with their own curriculum and teaching methods. Within these pathways, each child has an individual learning profile taught within small class groups, engendering a close family environment. Staff are very highly trained in autism and use a Positive Behaviour Support approach, all culminating to create an effective autism-friendly environment.
We benefit from having our own in-house specialist multidisciplinary team, comprising psychology, speech & language therapy, occupational therapy and behaviour support specialists, as well as a family support officer, school nurse and music therapy. The team works closely with teaching staff to deliver a rounded and holistic education that centres on autism specific life skills as well as academic skills.
Our childrens’ happiness and wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do, and we draw upon a broad range of approaches to tailor individual teaching programmes. We actively support every child’s emotional and social development; teaching them how to recognise, self-regulate and appropriately communicate their feelings, and how to interact successfully with their peers and the wider community.
We ensure children are introduced to a variety of exciting activities as soon as they enter our school including swimming, horse riding and cycling, shopping and cooking. We encourage them to develop their individual interests and talents and we run several clubs to support this such as computing, train club, football, dance, girls club and art.
Our greatest pleasure is always the feedback we receive from parents, who often express the delight they feel that at last, their child has been understood. Families feel supported by the school and that, for us, is the reason we are here.
