St Christopher’s (KS2 & KS3) PRU & Montgomery Road (KS4) PRU are two well-established Pupil Referral Units in Ipswich. With our dedicated, trained and experienced team we continue to develop and expand the services we offer young people with emotional and behavioural difficulties. Our aim is to support the “whole” child in becoming happy, healthy and successful young people both in and outside of school.
The units provide 12 full time places for KS2 (7-11 yrs) and KS3 (11-14 yrs) at St Christopher’s and a further 8 places for KS4 (15-16 yrs) are offered at our Montgomery Road site. St Christopher’s and Montgomery Road work closely with mainstream schools and families and we are happy to offer support and advice whenever our help is needed.
At KS2 and KS3 each young person is with us for approximately 30 weeks, with the aim of gradually reintegrating back into mainstream school after 20 weeks. Whilst with us, each young person will attend lessons in English, Maths, Science, PSHE, PE, Art and Humanities whilst developing strategies for managing their behaviour within a safe and nurturing environment. KS4 pupils are prepared for accredited courses and next steps post-16 into college courses or appropriate apprenticeships.
At St Christopher’s and Montgomery Road we employ a structured Rewards & Sanctions system which is the key to our students’ success in modifying their behaviour and improving their emotional intelligence.
