Becontree Primary ARP is a local authority maintained provision for children aged 4-11 with Autism Spectrum Conditions. 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 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 (ECH) Team , who all contribute to each child's development plan.
As it is a local authority maintained provision, 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 the ARP.

Inclusive Provision at Becontree
The ARP 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.
We work with a range of professionals and outside agencies to ensure the children in the ARP 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.
