The New Rush Hall School Piccolo provision is a LB Redbridge resource to support children in Reception, Y1 and Y2, who are struggling in mainstream schools.
The provision is part-time, with two classes providing twelve places, staffed by two teachers and two nursery nurses. Children attend each morning, returning to their mainstream school each afternoon and remaining on the roll of the mainstream school. The children have all been referred because of unsafe, inappropriate or worrying behaviour in their mainstream school.
There is an intention to work in partnership with parents/carers and other professionals in order to share skills and knowledge for the benefit of the child’s wellbeing and achievement. To enable this to happen, regular discussion and skill sharing opportunities are planned at an Intake Conference. Each child takes up their place with an initial twelve-week assessment period. This assessment will inform future work with the child.
