Reach Primary Learning Centre is a thirty two place provision for pupils aged between five and eleven years old (year 1 to year 6) who are at risk of exclusion or permanent exclusion from mainstream primary school. All of the pupils referred have mild Social Emotional and Mental Health needs. Twenty eight places are available for pupils from the south AIP. Four places are for pupils from other areas of the city and these are referred from the SEMH panel. We work closely with pupils, their families, referring schools and outside agencies to identify the needs of each individual child.
We support pupils to modify their behaviour to enable them to return to either their referring mainstream or a new mainstream school. On average the pupil is at the Centre for twelve weeks and then integrates into mainstream over four weeks. For some pupils a specialist setting may be more appropriate. If this is required, the referring school will apply for an Education, Health and Care Plan. This process takes twenty weeks. We encourage our pupils to respect differences in racial, cultural and religious backgrounds. We provide clear and consistent expectations for the pupils and work with them to manage their behaviour within these boundaries. The curriculum is personalised for every pupil and we want all children to enjoy learning in all lessons and make the best possible progress. We aim to influence their future decision making by affecting a change in both their cognitive, emotional and behavioural responses, and use this success to encourage them to make positive choices.
