The ARP is a provision for children, usually from Solihull, with identified attachment and anxiety issues which seriously impact on their chance of being successful in a mainstream school. The ARP offers a short term placement, aiming to build confidence and learning skills in order to enable children to return to mainstream school or in exceptional circumstances to move to a more specialist provision.

The vision for all pupils is to:

  • Develop a more secure attachment and the resilience to manage their own anxieties.
  • For pupils to aim to successfully reintegrate to mainstream provision.
  • To support families in managing need and in securing positive relationships with each other.
