Key Stage 3
At the Key Stage 3 Centre in Hertford, pupils either attend for an agreed period of respite or for a longer period while next steps are arranged.
Key Stage 4
The Key Stage 4 centre in Hoddesdon provides education for year 10 and 11 pupils. Many pupils are supported to reintegrate back into mainstream school once it has been identified that they are likely to be successful.
We aim to provide short term intervention to facilitate long term change. By providing early intervention for pupils with emotional and behavioural difficulties and support for our colleagues in schools, we aim to reduce the need for fixed term and permanent exclusion.
This support is provided within the pupil's school. The aim is to reduce problems and prevent further escalation of challenging behaviour and to re-engage students with their learning. The focus is behaviour for learning.
