Cranbrook Behaviour Centre is a new Additional Resource Provision which opened its doors to identified Redbridge pupils in September 2016 as a result of a school led initiative undertaken by Redbridge Primary and Special school Headteachers, who identified a need and wanted in partnership with the Local Authority to start the provision.

It is the culmination of commitment and strategy developed by Headteachers to support children with social, emotional and mental health issues through a therapeutic approach and early intervention, working in tandem with the existing provision within Redbridge. The centre provides short stay placements for Primary age pupils (12 in total), predominantly but not exclusively to KS2 pupils following a referral by the mainstream school.

Children will attend the Cranbrook Behaviour Centre 4 days a week Mon – Thurs and access mainstream provision, whilst also receiving a nurturing programme of support, which aims to enable them to see and regulate their behaviour and make them emotionally ready to be successful at school.

We aim to provide an ‘attainment friendly’ environment for vulnerable pupils, so that they are able to access the full mainstream provision before returning full-time to their own setting.

Cranbrook Primary School and the Behaviour Centre are committed to safeguarding its pupils and working in partnership with parents, carers and multi-agencies for the benefit of all our pupils.
