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, aligning them to Ofsted Education Inspection Framework (EIF) and the National Professional Qualifications (NPQ) framework. 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.
