​Harlescott Education Centre



Primary-age children are placed at the Service’s Harlescott Education Centre, usually on a shared placement, remaining on roll with their mainstream primary school.​




Aims of Harlescott Education Centre

Our key aim is to develop a highly effective, responsive Pupil Referral Unit which meets the needs of pupils with social, emotional, mental health and medical needs by:


  • ​ensuring the safety of pupils by creating a secure environment.
  • providing a high quality learning experience appropriate to the individual needs of the pupils.
  • maintaining pupils' programmes in their local community as far as possible.
  • offering professional assessment of the primary need of the pupils to inform their future placements.
  • supporting reintegration back into full-time education at the earliest opportunity.
  • working collaboratively with schools and professional agencies in order to provide an outstanding educational experience.
