The Sterling Centre - Additional Resource Provision

The Sterling Centre is a brand new additional resourced provision (ARP) at Kilburn Park School specifically for pupils with Autism.  Our goal is to create an educational experience that works for autistic children and their families.  We aim to support pupils to overcome the barriers associated with autism so that they can develop their social & communication skills and achieve academically to their full potential.  The Sterling Centre is part of Kilburn Park School and is covered by the school’s Mission Statement and Goals.


Admissions to The Sterling Centre:


Admission criteria:

  • Pupils need to be able to access the mainstream curriculum with reasonable modifications and adaptations.
  • Pupils need to be able to access the mainstream school at least 10 % of the time.

The SEND team will liaise with SENAS, parents and current settings regarding admissions to The Sterling Centre. During the consultation period pupils and parents will be invited to come and visit the school to allow the team to gain a better understanding of your child’s needs and their suitability to the centre.

Please note applications for the Sterling Centre are via Brent Council's Special Educational Needs Assessment Service NOT via Brent School Admissions. 


Staffing Ratios:

Pupils in the Sterling Centre are not funded for 1:1 support. Staffing levels are set out as 3 adults per 7 pupils.



All the pupils in the Sterling Centre will access the National Curriculum.


Parental visits to the school:

You will also be able to tour the school and visit the centre. There will be a question and answer session.  During the session pupils will be invited to come along and see the centre. 


Transition to Kilburn Park School:

Staff will work the the current setting and parents to develop a transition plan.  A member of the SEND team will go and visit the pupil at their current session as part of the transition plan. Each transition plan will be individualised according to the need of the pupil.

The Sterling Centre school day starts at 8:30 am and ends at 3:00pm. Some pupils are brought to and from school by Brent Transport.  Please note that transport is not organised by the school and will have to be arranged between parents and SENAS.
