Grove House VI Primary ARC

What does it do?

See below

Who is it for?

The ARC provides up to 14 places from Reception to Y6 for children who are severely vision impaired, and require more specialist support than a mainstream school could reasonably be expected to provide. Pupils accessing an ARC place will meet the assessment criteria for Range 5 in the Local Authority VI range descriptors, although individual needs are always considered. They will be tactile learners, who use braille and/or specialist technology as their main method of communication, or they will require large print at font 36 or above. Children whose vision is assessed at Range 4 or above and who have additional learning needs or who, for other reasons, would benefit from more targeted support may also be eligible for an ARC place. Pupils who access the provision and its resources will have vision impairment as their primary need and have an EHCP. Some pupils may also attend on an assessment place.

How do I access it?

The ARC is part of Bradford Council’s Sensory Service specialist provision for vision impaired children.
