Who do we cater for?

  • Short term medical conditions – mostly orthopedic post surgery cases e.g broken legs
  • Long term, possibly life threatening conditions
  • Mental health pupils – suicidal, depressed and anxious.

Placement at RES is initially for assessment, it is not permanent but is a time limited programme designed to enable the young person to develop sufficient emotional resilience to return to mainstream school.

Reintegration

The aim of the RES is to reintegrate pupils back into their mainstream school as soon as possible. The time that this takes varies, according to the need of each individual child. They will not be reintegrated until it is felt that they are ready and will be able to cope with everyday school life.

Our Reintegration Officer liaises with school and supports the pupil during this time of reintegration with transport and support within the classroom if needed.

We rely on parents/carers to work with us to accomplish the return to mainstream school.
