Last week was World Autism Awareness Week and at Hexham Middle School we are continuing the push to raise people's awareness of what autism is and what it means to have an autism spectrum condition. In school, pupils have engaged with informative assembly sessions where they shared what they already knew and what they wanted to know more about. We are very proud that our pupils are autism aware and will continue to raise awareness in school and the community.
