What is the ARC Matrix?

The ARC Matrix is a detailed assessment and planning structure for understanding and developing your setting’s work on attachment and trauma. The Matrix is designed as a ‘top-down’ and ‘bottom-up’ approach, giving senior leaders a comprehensive overview of their school’s development and an individual’s understanding of their journey. It has three strands: individual, institutional and community and three foci: people, process and outcomes and will support the ARC Pathway through Bronze, Silver and Gold levels of commitment.
