Enfys is a Specialist Resource Base for autistic children aged 3 to 11 years old.
We are a safe, fun and supportive class where children and families are welcomed and supported by a specialist team of staff.
We work closely with children, families and professionals to develop and facilitate individualised programmes that meet the needs of our children.
Every child in Enfys is very much a part of the wider Ysgol Llwyn yr Eos School community, having valuable opportunities for integration with mainstream classes.
The Enfys Team
Pupils benefit from a dedicated, skilled and experienced staff team who have exceptionally high expectations. We are proud and passionate about the work we do, and strive to provide the best support and opportunities for all pupils.
The Enfys team work together with families to agree individualised outcomes.
We work closely with multi agency teams including Speech and language Therapists, Disabled Children’s Team, Education Psychologists and Medical professionals.
What we do
There are learning opportunities and teachable moments in everything we do.
Individualised timetables and programmes help to ensure that pupils are supported and challenged at an appropriate level daily.
We work towards developing effective communication, sensory processing, self help and independence skills. We help individuals understand themselves and the world we live in.
How we do it
Here are examples of some of the approaches and opportunities we offer:
- Total communication including reduced verbal instructions and direction, symbols, photos, objects of reference and signing,
- High staff ratio to enable small group and 1:1 work,
- Multisensory activities,
- Sensory room,
- Sensory stories and story massage,
- Visual timetables,
- Attention activities including bucket time and sensology,
- Social stories,
- TalkAbout sessions,
- Art, craft and art therapy,
- Food exploring,
- Appropriate processing time,
- Toileting and changing facilities,
- Safe playground,
This is not a full list of what we do; we continually strive to adapt, amend and introduce new approaches and opportunities appropriate to each individual.
Enfys is in a great location close to a wide variety of environments. We believe that learning and lessons can take place anywhere; here are some examples we use:

We offer a fun, safe environment where children, families and staff learn, observe, problem solve, challenge and celebrate together.
