Becoming an Attachment & Trauma Aware setting – developing your work through the ARC Pathway

ARC membership supports your development as an attachment and trauma aware school or setting. We don’t inspect or award quality marks, instead ARC members sign up to an aspirational standard which ARC membership helps them to achieve via the ARC Pathway.

The ARC Pathway is based on work undertaken by hundreds of schools and settings to embed attachment and trauma aware practice. 

"Schools... should ensure that all staff who may come into contact with children and young people with attachment difficulties receive appropriate training..."
