About Us

At Fountain Head House School, we are dedicated to excellence and providing personalised learning opportunities for our children. 

Our Vision

To be the highest performing provider for children with Education and Health Care Plans nationally.

We are an Autism friendly school and keep up to date with current thinking and development in autism. Our teachers and support staff work closely with our therapists to assess and design programmes to enable our students to achieve and develop to their best ability. 

Our specialist programs and dedication to child development set us apart.

Sensory integration therapy uses play activities in ways designed to change how the brain reacts to touch, sound, sight and movement. These difficulties can make ordinary situations feel overwhelming and so they can interfere with daily function and even isolate individuals and their families. Motor clumsiness, behavioural problems, anxiety, depression, school failure, and other impacts can result. Occupational therapy sessions typically take place in a sensory-rich environment, sometimes through fun activities, that are subtly structured, so the child is constantly challenged but always successful. The goal is to foster appropriate responses to sensation in an active, meaningful, and fun way so that the child can behave in a more functional manner. Our Occupational Therapists will work with children either on a one-to-one basis or in a group setting – at school or in the child’s home. Over time, the appropriate responses generalise to the environment beyond the therapy room to the broader community.

Our Mission

To provide innovative, personalised and exciting learning opportunities that ensure our students are happy and successful in life.

We understand that every child is different which is why we are committed to helping our students learn and grow with methods that suit them and their individual needs.

At Fountain Head House School, no child is left behind.
