Tameside Pupil Referral Service provides outreach support to Secondary schools in the area. The aim is to reduce problems and prevent further escalation of difficult behaviour and to re-engage students with their learning and school environment. The support is provided within the student’s school and is targeted one to one individual session or groupwork sessions dependent on need.
Our areas of support on offer includes:
- Developing appropriate self-management strategies
- Improving and developing communication skills
- Improving self-esteem and confidence building
- Building resilience
- Improving relationships/Healthy relationships
- Problem solving techniques
- Goal setting
The outreach service also works alongside our Elmbridge site to offer a step out programme for those students who need extra targeted support away from their home school environment.
Testimonials from the students
‘I have learnt to be more positive about school and this helps me get through my days’.
'When I see Miss O’Brien each week it makes me happy and gives me the chance to talk through any issues or problems. I have learnt some techniques that have helped me deal with my anger differently in school’.
‘I no longer shout at staff if I feel I am being treated unfairly. I didn’t know how to control myself but now I do’.
