Grange Primary School

Grange Primary School

The Council is proposing to create specialist provision at Grange Primary for pupils who have moderate learning difficulties and/or autism. Two provisions are proposed – a 12 place nursery provision (6 place Full time equivalent) and a 12 place school provision.  The aim of the provision will be offer improved outcomes for pupils with moderate learning difficulties and/or autistic spectrum disorder (ASD).

The provision will offer inclusive education and social opportunities, alongside access to specialist intervention from teaching staff and in-class support. There will be 12 places in each provision (Nursery 6 FTE places) and 6 staff in Nursery provision and 2 teachers and up to 5 support staff in the Primary Provision.

Pupils attending the resourced provision will have an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) and receive special educational support they require from appropriately qualified staff. Any additional services from partner agencies, where required as specified on their EHC plan will also be provided. 

The ARMs provision is required from January 2023. The development of the provision is part of a long term strategy to increase special school provision in Harrow.  This is in accordance with the Strategic Priority 1 in the SEND Strategy to increase provision in Harrow to meet growing need.

The provision will require additional and suitable accommodation to create an appropriate teaching and learning environment. An area within the school has been identified and a scope of works outlined. These include refurbishment works to an existing school wing to develop new teaching rooms, group rooms and a sensory room.  The design includes the installation of new pupil toilets.  The nursery provision will require an extension to the current nursery which will include teaching space, toilets and a sensory room. 

Grange Primary School will receive additional funding for the unit.
