ARP - Information for Parents
Welcome to George Carey ARP!
George Carey ARP is an Additional Resource Provision for 12 children with complex social communication and interaction needs and a diagnosis of Autism (ASC). All of our children have an Education Health Care Plan and children are allocated spaces in the ARP through the LA SEN Panel and not by the school.
It is recognised that children in the ARP need access to a wide range of learning opportunities and not just the academic skills. Children need teaching and learning to cover social interaction, communication skills, emotional regulation and sensory regulation techniques. It is also important that children are taught life skills, particularly those that will keep themselves and others safe.
The ARP is highly structured and each child accesses a curriculum tailored to their individual needs and ability, using targets acquired from our assessments. The curriculum is carefully planned to help motivate the children to learn, making use of interests and learning styles. Children have individual targets that are incorporated into everyday teaching across the learning environments including mainstream, outdoor provision and home.
