The Rainbow


The Rainbow is an Additional Resource Provision for 12 pupils who with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and communication and interaction needs. The Rainbow provides a bespoke learning environment for the children, with a curriculum tailored to meet their needs.  

 A wide range of activities such as Attention Autism, Lego therapy and Intensive interaction are used to develop the children’s speech and language and social communication. There are regular visits and advice from outside agencies including Speech and Language therapists and Educational Psychologists.



We aim to provide a high quality, effective and inclusive additional provision which would allow opportunities for all children to achieve, regardless of their starting point.  We will develop the children’s educational and personal potential in a safe, stimulating and supportive learning environment. 


The ARP at Nelmes enables pupils to have access to a balanced curriculum in the ARP setting and mainstream class with their peers. The ARP aims:

  • For all pupils to make good progress and achieve their potential.
  • To provide support and a curriculum appropriate to their cognitive levels of development.
  • To meet the EHCP objectives for their pupils.

To ensure that the autistic pupils are able to work alongside their peers and other staff in the school, the ARP has the following organisational aims:

  • Provide a highly structured teaching environment.
  • Work in partnership with parents.
  • Work in partnership with external support, professionals and therapists.
