About Rivers Education Support Centre

  • Rivers Education Support Centre provides educational programmes to support pupils who are at serious risk of permanent exclusion, or who have been permanently excluded from their mainstream school.

    The Centre’s vision is to inspire and enable pupils to:


    • Become confident, independent and successful young people


    • Excel in Learning


    • Engage positively with the community


    • Be ambitious for their futures.

      Key Stage 3

      At the Key Stage 3 centre in Hertford, pupils either attend for an agreed period of respite or for a longer period while next steps are arranged. Pupils are provided with a broad curriculum and barriers to education are identified. Pupils are supported to find strategies to overcome these barriers to support them to be successful in school. Once a mainstream school has been identified, pupils are supported to reintegrate by the Rivers ESC outreach team. Where appropriate, statutory assessments are conducted for pupils in Key Stage 3 to identify additional support that may be required and in some instances to support the process towards a placement in an alternative/specialist provision.

      Key Stage 4

      The Key Stage 4 centre in Hoddesdon provides education for year 10 and 11 pupils. Many pupils are supported to reintegrate back into mainstream school once it has been identified that they are likely to be successful. Rivers ESC works with the Fair Access team in Hertfordshire to choose the new school placement and to plan how to meet the additional needs of the pupil who is reintegrating.

      KS4 pupils complete a wide range of exam based and vocational qualifications to work towards future aspirations and chosen career pathways. Some KS4 pupils may work on learning pathways which include attendance at alternative provisions supported by centre staff. Pupils have access to a broad range of subjects at a variety of levels and are guided to be highly aspirational with the courses they select. Pupil outcomes are outstanding.


      The safe recruitment of staff is the first step to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people in education.

      Rivers ESC is committed to safeguarding children, young people and promoting the welfare of the pupils in its care and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All post holders are subject to a satisfactory enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. We welcome visits from potential applicants.
