The Arc

Enhanced Provision- The Arc

The Arc is an alternative provision for young children whose learning in their current school is of concern due to barrier caused by behaviour, emotional needs or social difficulties.

The Arc is located within Ghyllgrove Primary School it is a specialist learning environment; it is a safe haven for the growth and development of individual children. It is a time limited alternative education provision for SEMH children, who are not learning and/or progressing in their current school. The Arc supports pupils to improve their behaviour and engagement by working directly with the referring school, child and family.

Some pupils will attend the provision and the Arc aims to reintegrate pupils back to their school. Some pupils, schools and families will receive support via our outreach support program.

The sole referral route to the Arc is via the Primary SEMH Panel.


For further information on the Arc please contact Mrs L Patmore at Ghyllgrove Primary School.
