Pupil Referral Unit
We provide alternative educational provision to reintegrate pupils into full time mainstream or special education at the earliest opportunity. In the interim, there is a need to ensure access to quality education, for opportunities for working in partnership with other agencies e.g. CAMHS, EPS, EWS and systems for maintaining links with the Connexions service.

“The PHPRU is a wonderful environment for pupils who have struggled with mainstream schools, to rebuild their confidence and reconnect with education. The staff are committed, caring and understanding of individual children’s needs, while at the same time, encouraging them to push themselves to do as much as they can.”
“Given him confidence to speak and voice his own opinion. Given him the confidence to attend school without fear and apprehension. Made him feel he is someone and not a nobody and he can do well. No negatives, just keep on doing what you’re doing best.”
“He has only just started at PHPRU and not yet full time. I believe he is happier at this school than he ever was at Minsthorpe. The size of the class and the total size of the school population are having an effect on this. He is still adjusting to being in a school after being out of school for 20 months, so it’s difficult to say if he’s settled due to his autism.”
