The Resourced Provision in Parklands Primary is fondly known as ‘RP’. It is a specialist resource which supports children to reach their full potential. It is a nurturing environment which is designed to allow children to follow their own interests and to develop as competent and independent learners.
We pride ourselves on the positive relationships we have with the children and their parents/ carers. We believe that each child has a great deal to offer and so we plan from each child’s individuality, their efforts and their achievements. RP is a place where children can explore their own interests in a safe and enabling environment, designed to challenge and develop learning.
Each child in the provision will also have the opportunity to access mainstream learning. This is supported by a resourced provision member of staff. We believe that inclusion in mainstream is vital and that the support given by the adult allows each child to have the confidence to join in and learn with their peers, providing excellent opportunities to access other areas of the curriculum.
The children in the resource provision range from 5 to 11 years of age. To meet their varying needs and abilities we have planned a bespoke curriculum for the children to achieve their true potential. The curriculum is planned by talking objectives and outcomes from EYFS framework and the year 1 and 2 national curriculum. We carefully plan learning opportunities that will allow the children to gain knowledge of the world around them but that will also let them to develop independence, allow for social interaction and improve their speech, language and communication skills. We endeavour to give the children as many real-life experiences as possible by planning trips, swimming weekly and going to the local soft play centre.
Here is what one of our recent visitors has said about RP:
“You have created a wonderfully bright and welcoming environment. It was so lovely to hear children laughing and enjoying learning. It was clear to see how much time, effort and thought has been put into the resourced base, not only in its physical organisation and wonderful displays but also in capturing children’s successes through their personal learning journeys.”
