ARP Team

Mrs Julia Tyldesley: Assistant Headteacher for Inclusion / SENDCo

My priority is to raise the achievement of those students who struggle the most with academic work. I come from a background of raising standards for children with SEND in a large, school in Dagenham with a 50 place ARP for children with learning disabilities and autism. I am passionate about maintaining high expectations for children with SEND which means supporting them to reach their potential and helping them to achieve outcomes that help with the next stage of their lives.

Miss Amy Weatherall: ARP Lead Teacher

Miss Weatherall is the Lead Teacher for our Additionally Resourced Provision for children with autism. She is a firm believer that for children to reach their full potential, self esteem and confidence are vital and that this can be achieved by intertwining a high quality curriculum in the classroom with effective student focussed interventions. Miss Weatherall is an experienced teacher, who has worked across both the primary and secondary sector and has a proven track record for raising standards.


Miss Weatherall is committed to supporting the very best outcomes for children on the Autistic Spectrum and those with additional learning needs. Miss Weatherall has experience working with the Sycamore Trust, which is a charity that supports families with autistic children and has developed autism training schemes across Barking and Dagenham. She has also been a carer for young people and is passionate about their future.
