Head's Welcome

Dear Parents, Carers and Visitors,


As Headteacher of the Beacon Pupil Referral Unit I have the privilege of welcoming you to our website.


The Beacon caters for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 pupils who are presenting with Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs. .


At The Beacon our highly skilled and dedicated staff ensure that our pupils are at the heart of everything we do. We provide a safe and caring environment where everyone is valued and encouraged to respect themselves and others. We recognise strengths and through offering a rich learning environment, with a strong emphasis on therapeutic care, we strive to re-engage pupils helping them to maximise their potential.


We work in partnership with families and professionals, providing a supportive learning environment where children are safe to learn and are also equipped for the next step in their education; whether this is a return to mainstream school or a specialist provision.


An important aspect of our work at The Beacon is the support we offer to our mainstream colleagues. More detailed information concerning the services we offer and how this can be accessed can be found on our Outreach Pages.


I hope that our website will give you all the information you require about our unit, and provide you with an insight into the activities that our pupils enjoy through our curriculum and extra-curricular activities.


Kind Regards

Lesley Hatton
