ARP (Additionally Resourced Provision)


Humera Aziz

ARP Lead

At Selborne Primary School we have an Additionally Resourced Provision (ARP) that has 21 places for children with Autism, Social Communication difficulties, Speech and Language difficulties and other complex learning difficulties. 

These children are expected to integrate into the main school for a proportion of their day and will receive support to help them to maximise on the learning opportunities presented in the main school. It is expected that they work towards independent integration, without support from ARP staff.


How are children placed into the ARP?

Children need an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) to attend our ARP.

Referrals are sent to us by the SEND Assessment Team at Carmelita House, 21-22 The Mall, Ealing, London, W5 2PJ. We consider the referral paperwork, possibly visiting the child in their education setting and assess against our admission criteria as to whether we can meet the child’s needs.

If we feel we are able to meet the child’s needs, we would invite you to meet with us and look around our ARP.  This would be followed by the admissions process. We are an ARP setting and so there are occasions when we cannot meet a child’s needs in our provision and the referral would be declined. 

Children cannot move into the ARP from the main school. 

All admissions to the ARP are through the SEND Assessment Team.
