"There are a number of strengths evident at PACE. The school’s relationship with
parents is extremely strong. Leaders and staff work hard and with great success
to build trust and confidence with parents who are often disillusioned about
education and disheartened that there is no one who can help their child. ‘They
are great listeners,’ and ‘I know they will help me, if I need it,’ are typical
comments from parents about staff"

St Helens PACE Pupil Referral Unit provides short-term educational places (2/3 terms) for children at Key Stage One and Key Stage Two who are registered in mainstream schools in St Helens. The pupils who attend present with challenging behaviour and are experiencing some degree of social, emotional and/or mental health difficulty.
PACE specialises in short term intervention strategies, in particular a structured behavioural system in a small, nurturing group environment. We aim to provide a broad and exciting curriculum for the children, intent on re engaging them with their education.
PACE actively supports the concept of inclusion and pupils are reintegrated back into mainstream school as quickly as possible. The children are referred, usually after considerable Outreach Support through the Behaviour Improvement Team (BIT) has been tried within the child’s mainstream school.
St Helens PACE is situated in a residential area within five minutes of St Helen's Town Centre and easily accessible for all Primary Schools in the Borough.
PACE is a single storey building with four classrooms, a Hall and enclosed playground. The BIT office base and Key Stage 3 Pupil Referral Unit are also located in the building.
