Moore ARP



Ripple Primary school, Barking is situated across two sites, the Westbury site on Ripple Road and the Suffolk Road site.


Within the school we also have the alternative provision of the ‘Moore ASC ARP.’


The Moore ARP is a 24 space ARP for children who have a diagnosis of autism. To attend the Moore ARP children will have been issued with an EHCP and places are allocated through discussions with the EHC Team in the Local Authority.


Children attending the ARP range from Reception age through to Year 6.

Children placed within the ARP will stay until needing to transition to Secondary school. The SENCO team support parents with this transition by accompanying parents to visit secondary placements and by working with staff in preparing children for the next provision. The SENCO team, along with ARP teachers hold annual reviews to discuss children’s progress along with 2 smaller reviews throughout the year. In addition to this, parents/carers are invited to coffee afternoons twice a year to share in the progress and work of their children.


The staff to pupil ratio is 1:3.


Communication and the promotion of communication is a large part of the work that staff undertake with children.


Children attending have various levels of being able to communicate, from pre- verbal to those who are language partners.


Staff working with children are trained to use visual resources to enhance the ability for children to communicate and make their needs known along with the use of Makaton signing. Emotional regulation is also an area of focus and staff encourage children to be able to identify how they are feeling and ways to regulate emotions.


As part of inclusive practice and where possible children are encouraged to join with the lessons in the mainstream school accompanied by support staff, as needed. Dependent on individual children and need, children are encouraged to share lunchtime and playtimes with the mainstream school.
