BASIS - Brunel access support and improvement service


BASIS is our umbrella term to describe a range of services and specialist staff available to support schools, professionals, parents and families to meet the needs of children and young people with additional needs including those that can be considered as Special Education Needs and Disabilities - SEND.

Currently our BASIS offer includes:

  • School Improvement Consultancy
  • Wide range of training and support including for ASC and ADHD 
  • Autism Resource Centres (ARC) Traded Services including OUTREACH, Bespoke Packages and  Forest School
  • All Aboard Nursery 


ARC offers an enhanced education programme of social communication and therapeutic learning activities for pupils aged 4-19 and is largely delivered on sites away from the child’s school. The programme is led and managed by an ASC specialist teacher and a team of experienced ASC Workers. ARC’s core aim is to support schools in their endeavour to design and implement effective learning provision for an individual ASC/SCID affected pupil.

The concept of an ARC intervention has developed and grown steadily over the last few years. We offer the following programmes:

  • ARC Headlands: KS1/KS2 Structured Teaching/therapy/Social Communication skills
  • ARC Sparkle: KS2: social communication skills /PHSE
  • ARC Liberty: KS3/4: social communication skills/PHSE
  • ARC OUTREACH: Specialist staff working with staff and pupils in schools
  • ARC Play Therapy: ARC offers individual and Group play therapy sessions delivered by a qualified Play Therapist
  • ARC Bespoke: An individualised and personal programme of support completely designed around the Children and Young Peoples needs
