For many Virtual Heads and EP services, developing the capacity of schools to meet the needs of their children is a key issue, on a national level. Many have used ARC membership as their starting point and a means of connecting local practice to a national agenda focused on children’s mental health and well being. With many schools going the extra mile and developing best practices, making a huge difference to children’s lives and futures, ARC has extended its membership offer. This newly developed offer now includes a bespoke self assessment tool in the ARC Matrix, a development plan framework and audit resource and an ARC Pathway model, specifically designed to support school settings, to begin and continue their journey to becoming attachment and trauma aware; as well as align with Ofsted criteria.
