We have a number of staff who work in The ARP and other staff who oversee the running of The ARP.
The ARP Leads work closely with the ARP Class Teacher to monitor and maintain a high standard of teaching and learning across both classes. All staff engage in regular and ongoing training related to autism teaching and learning.
One of the main strengths of the ARP is that staff know all the children extremely well and can ensure that provision is tailored to their individual needs. Good communication and team work between adult’s results in a consistent approach and all members of the team are highly valued, with all staff leading group sessions.
Staff are encouraged to share ideas and contribute to all aspects of the ARP including group planning, physical structure of the environment and implementation of the development plan. It is, however, the responsibility of the ARP Leads and Class Teacher to make final decisions
