Expanding Mainstream and SEND Capacity at Tithe Barn Primary School

Page 1 of 3

Closes 18 Jun 2023


A Specialist Resource Provision (SRP) is a provision within a minstream school where specific places are reserved for pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). These pupils generally spend around 50% of their time taught within the mainstream classes, however they do not take up a mainstream school place.  

A resource provision is designed to enhance the inclusion of children with SEND in to mainstream schools and allow them to reach their full potential. It allows the school to promote inclusion and community cohesion while offering SEND pupils the ability to transition to a full mainstream curriculum where appropriate. This provision benefits both SEND and mainstream pupils as the school will have improved facilities and staff with experience in dealing with complex educational and social, emotional and mental health needs.
