As a PRU we often struggle to find alternative provision that suits our young people. The partnership with REACH has developed into a really valuable part of our provision, one that students now ask to be a part of. The ability to ask for particular areas to be addressed during the sessions gives confidence that it is not just the activity that is going on, but work around social, emotional and behavioural issues. The activities are really popular and it is evident from student feedback that they are often challenging as well as fun. Staff feedback is comprehensive and valuable and is followed up by tutors at the Mendip Centre. Staff are flexible and do their very best to meet the needs of our young people, which are complex individually and often more so in a group.
As a PRU we value the work of REACH highly, and I know that this is shared by our students.
