Four Seasons ARP
Four Seasons ARP is a 12 placed local authority maintained provision for children aged 4-11 with Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC). The children who attend have an array of needs and are on different levels of the spectrum.
We aim to provide every child with the opportunity to progress both academically, emotionally and socially and we do this by putting plans in place that are tailored to each child's individual needs.
Our staff work with external professionals for example Speech and Language Therapists, Education Psychologists and the Education Health Care (EHC) Team, who all contribute to each child's development plan.
How are places allocated?
As it is a local authority maintained provision, children need to have an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) to attend the setting. Places are allocated by the Education Health Care Team and not by the school. All children have an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) who access Four Seasons
We receive consultation paperwork and the referral from the EHC Team, and we consider if we are able to meet the child's needs in the setting. We also visit the child in their current setting and speak to other professionals who have worked with the child.
If we feel we are able to meet the child's need, we will then invite you to look around the ARP. This would be followed by the admissions process by the school and the EHC Team.
We are an ARP setting and so there are occasions when we cannot offer a placement this could be because:
In these instances, the referral would be declined.

Inclusive Provision at Becontree
Four Seasons is located alongside the mainstream classrooms within the school. We strive to ensure that the children who learn in these classrooms are part of the school community, and we make sure they feel included and play an active part in school life.
We aim for every child to spend some time in their year group classroom with their peers although this is based on the child's ability and needs within the context of the mainstream classroom and also agreed by a multi-disciplinary team of professionals.
We work with a range of professionals and outside agencies to ensure the children in Four Seasons are well supported and have their individual needs met in order for them to thrive and make progress.
We receive support from local authority inclusion advisors as well as working in partnership with the Educational Psychologist Service and Speech and Language therapist who contribute towards the children's targets and assessment of needs as well as providing advice and training for staff.
