Cranbury College

Extended offer

Respite The Cranbury College Respite package is an intervention that is agreed between the College and a school. The aim of the respite package is to work with those students who are most at risk of exclusion from school.

The package includes:

  • SEN Baseline assessments
  • Behaviour Support
  • CBT model of intervention
  • Emotional Regulation awareness
  • Family Support
  • External agency links

Staff that work on the respite programme take a holistic approach to cover both the academic and emotional aspects of a child’s make-up, using various base line assessments and tools to support the identification of what could be their barriers to learning and progression.

This package is offered for a minimum of 3 weeks at a set cost.

The objective of this package is to allow the child some space from the mainstream education facility that is not currently working for a variety of reasons. In the environment of Cranbury College we have the capacity to observe within a smaller setting that includes many 1:1 sessions.

All information is gathered and shared with the school via a closing document that will offer an overview, outcomes and recommendations.


Through our Reintegration Officer we aim to reintegrate those ready for mainstream after successful period of time at Cranbury College.

Students are identified through the “Pupil Progress Team” Meetings. These students will have demonstrated good and sustainable progress at the College, either through their ILP or on one of the Cranbury College sites. The Reintegration Officer will work with individual students and the identified mainstream school.

A series of sessions will be planned and students will be prepared and then transitioned into their new school placement with a tight support plan around them. The reintegration office will offer the school and student a number of sessions within the mainstream setting to ensure as smooth and successful transition.
