Understanding different types of specialist provision within a mainstream school


Dynamic Assessment Group -  Dynamic Assessment is a kind of interactive assessment used in education  It identifies a child's learning needs and skills and enables early intervention and planning for future school placement. Children identified for these groups do not require an EHCP though may begin assessment for one during their attendance at the dynamic assessment group.

An Enhanced Specialist Teaching Arrangement or ESTA or supports a number of pupils with special educational needs, enabling those pupils to be fully included in the mainstream school. In an ESTA support is offered as part of a mainstream class placement. Access to small group teaching is limited.

A Specialist Resource Provision or SRP or aims to provide targeted support which enables children to make progress, achieve their identified outcomes and continue to access the mainstream curriculum while being provided with a specialist intervention programme. SRPs have discrete teaching spaces and staffing to enable substantial access to small group teaching alongside access to mainstream classes.
