Re-start Unit

Re-Start Unit


The Re-Start Unit is an enhanced provision which is situated in Canvey Junior School. We aim to support KS2 pupils who are at risk of permanent exclusion in their own school setting. Many pupils experience barriers to learning such Social, Emotional, Behavioural and Mental Health challenges.

Placements are generally 12 weeks with the expectation that each pupil returns to their referring school. We ensure that we work closely with other professionals, referring schools and parents to build trusting relationships as this is key to our success. 

Our aim in the Unit is to help our pupils recognise their full potential, increase their confidence in everyday life and learn strategies to cope/overcome potential barriers.

Staff in the Re-Start Unit are all fully trained and use a therapeutic approach to gain a deeper understanding of each pupils individual needs.

In order to obtain a placement at the Re-Start Unit a referral to the SEMH panel is required. Please contact the school office for further information.
