Carrington Junior School's ARP
The Additional Resourced Provision is intended to provide placement for up to eight children, who have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP), with a primary need of ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder). The SEN team at County decide on the admissions of pupils into the ARP based on the entry criteria. Four members of staff are dedicated to the ARP with the aim to support children integrate, where possible, based on their individual need. Children in the ARP have access to a Specialist Speech and Language Therapist (SaLT) and an Occupational Therapist (OT) who visit on a weekly basis. Children access mainstream classes for varying percentages of their school week, according to their needs. They also have access to extra interventions, such as social skills groups, life skills and emotional regulation support.
Our ARP aims to support the development of the children by providing specialist support within a mainstream school and by helping children fulfil their full potential. Children in the ARP take part in school trips with their year groups and are fully included, where appropriate, in all aspects of school life.
Our ARP is not a stand-alone classroom but more of a “base” within the school to support our children with ASD. Children are registered in the ARP and access their timetables for the day. Key curriculum information and school events are also displayed in the ARP.
A home/school book is provided for the children where the ARP staff add comments to inform parents what went well and any issues that occurred or any activities that would be beneficial to practise at home. Parents are encouraged to write in these books to inform us of any changes of routine, evening/weekend activities or any incidents that may affect their child’s learning throughout the following day.
Annual reviews take place once a year but can be more often if deemed necessary. The Inclusion Manager, class teacher, SaLT, OT and ARP staff join the parents to discuss the child’s progress during the year and together make any changes to the child’s EHC Plan and set new outcomes. The appropriateness of the placement is considered annually at each annual review of the EHC plan. As well as these meetings, we hold two other SEN review meetings with parents to look at how well the child is accessing the curriculum and to highlight any interventions necessary.
We also hold termly parent workshops for parents of children in the ARP where we may invite specialists in to share ideas and strategies to improve outcomes for children with ASD.
