The ARC is a place for all students who are less able to
cope within the main school, it is an area where calm and
understanding is shown, YES we encourage students to
work and this is also a big part of the ARC promoting
the small achievements.
The pupils have set the rules and have small targets to
achieve each week, set by themselves, Maria and Becky.
We also have students in The ARC from time to time,
who may not be coping that day – and need time out
from their group, they are only given a place in The ARC
with the permission of SLT and the understanding they
do not disrupt the ARC and follow the rules in there.
ARC students have free access to drinks in the
classroom and are allowed to use the corridor outside
for time out if they wish – monitored by Maria or Becky.
