Christchurch Learning Centre is a Pupil Referral Unit which provides education for those pupils who have been permanently excluded from mainstream school. We also offer provision for those pupils with medical/mental health needs which prevent them from accessing their mainstream place.
Pupils can only gain access to our provision if a referral is agreed by the Exclusions Team or the CMOE Team which are managed by Angie Hill and Lorraine Birchell
Christchurch Learning Centre (CLC) is currently able to offer 40 pupil places. This comprises of up to 20 places at our main site on Stour Road and up to 20 places at our medical site at Stour Cottage on Barrack Road.
Once a place has been agreed by the appropriate team with identifiable outcomes and time frames, parents will be contacted to arrange an induction meeting within 7 days. Admission forms and a parent handbook will be posted to parents prior to this meeting but are also available from the school website.
During the induction meeting, we will make initial plans for intervention and support and discuss an induction timetable which allows CLC staff time to complete baseline assessments and plan a differentiated programme that meets the needs of the individual pupil.
Provision cannot commence until the Centre is in receipt of all admission forms required.
