Additional Resourced Provision at Newfield: Laurel Class

Laurel Class at Newfield Primary School is an Additionally Resourced Provision (ARP) for pupils who are neuro-diverse and have social, emotional and communication needs. Most pupils have a diagnosis of autism. Pupils are admitted from Nursery to Year 6.


Our aim is to create an education experience that is ambitious and engaging, tailored to pupils’ individual needs which allows all children to make good progress over time and to achieve academically to their reach full potential from their own starting points. Where possible, we want to see our pupils return to and succeed in their mainstream class.


The school day starts at 8.55am and ends at 3.20pm in line with the rest of the school.

Laurel Class is a part of the whole school and as such follows whole school policies and procedures with some adaptations to meet the needs of the children.


Laurel class is set in a new purpose-built building with its own outside play area. There is a sensory room, breakout space and an individual learning room within the setting.


Laurel Class eat their lunch in their classroom with their adults. It is a very sociable time. You may want your child to have a healthy meal provided by the school or you can provide a healthy packed lunch yourself. You may want to try an option of both to encourage your child to try new foods. We will do our best to support you and your child with your preferred option.


Pupils should wear school uniform and can come to school in their school PE kit on a Friday.

Laurel class is supported by the main school Speech and Language Therapist.  Occupational Therapy is provided by Brent Council.


We work closely in collaboration with parents, Brent Council and The Rise Partnership to provide the best offer to all of the pupils in our ARP.
