Rokeby Resource Provision
The Resource Provision at Rokeby is a specialist provision which supports children whose prime area of need is Communication and Interaction. It is a nurturing environment which is designed enable learners to develop their communication skills through a mixture of adult led interventions and purposeful play. Pupils on role at the Resource Provision have access to a private speech and language therapist and specialist teachers throughout the week. Our speech therapist from Pepper Therapy is based in the Resource Provision on Mondays and Wednesday, a specialist teacher from Warwickshire Specialist Teaching Service on Tuesdays and a ASD specialist teacher from Milestone Education on Thursdays. On Fridays our SENDCo is based in the resource provision so pupils and support staff have access to a range of expertise across the week. We believe that pupils at Rokeby Resource Provision should be equipped with the skills they need to integrate into the mainstream classroom and wider community. It is our aim that, when they are ready, RP pupils will spend at least half of their time within their mainstream class, supported by Teaching Assistants trained to meet their needs.
Each child’s curriculum is designed to meet their individual needs, drawing upon a range of objectives and outcomes from the EYFS framework, the Autism Education Trust Framework, The National Curriculum and the Engagement Model. Pupils will have the opportunity to learn key life skills that will help them develop independence, encourage social interaction and improve their speech, language and communication skills.
