Specialist Resource Provision (SRP)

Our Specialist Resourced Provision (SRP) is commissioned by Kent Local Authority. It provides specialist provision for children with Education Health and Care Plans (EHCPs) with a primary need of Autism (ASD). The Local Authority (LA) is responsible for placing children. The school informs the LA of available places depending on class size, age group and current level of need. This child's needs are then discussed at an SRP panel with representatives from the LA and SEN specialists. If the panel believes a child could be suitably placed at our school, we will then receive consultation paperwork to review and decide whether the school can meet the pupil's needs. A response must be sent from the school back to the LA within 15 days. 

Parents are invited to come to look around the school and meet the staff when looking at placement options for their children. Once placement has been agreed, a transition meeting will be arranged where parents will receive the welcome pack, a visual welcome pack for the pupil and a transition timetable will be arranged. The transition timetable is based on the individual pupil's prior experience of school and their level of need.

SRP Places

We have been commissioned 8 spaces for this academic year by the Local Authority for our SRP. 

We currently have 6 pupils on roll in the SRP across all year groups. Our SRP staff includes a lead SRP teacher, Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA) and Teaching Assistant (TA) who all have knowledge and expertise in working with children with a range of SEN needs including Autism. The SRP team are supported by the school's SENCo and Headteacher. 

Pupils within the SRP need to show the potential to integrate into their mainstream classrooms. Levels of integration are dependent on the individual pupils, the subjects of interest to them and their prior school experience. We aim for all pupils to be included in all aspects of school life as well as in the classroom. This is including assemblies, extra-curricular clubs, offsite trips, special events and whole school activities and rewards. The class teachers maintain a regular dialogue with the SRP team and therefore pupil's education is holistically developed by all members of staff.

Annual Reviews

Annual reviews are held for all pupils with an EHCP where progress towards outcomes, strengths and difficulties, levels of provision and interventions are discussed. Pupils with an EHCP also have provision plan meetings three times a year to measure the progress towards their SEN outcomes outlined in their EHCPs. The meeting will also provide an opportunity to discuss provision and progress towards the agreed smaller targets based on their end of Key Stage Outcomes.

KCC Annual Review Information and Documents

Interventions

Interventions are based on those listed on pupils' EHCPs. These could be conducted in small group environments or on a one-to-one basis with an appropriately trained and qualified adult. 

The range of interventions could include:

  • Social Skills
  • Zones of Regulation
  • Drawing and Talking 
  • Speech and Language 
  • Resilience and Self-Esteem interventions
  • Sensory Circuits
  • Exploring Senses
  • Well-being Check Ins
  • Lego Therapy

Interventions are planned and conducted for an agreed period of time prior to commencement of the intervention. This is then reviewed for progress and impact at scheduled intervals.
