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.
"You don't have to 'fit in' to fit in at our school." CA, Year 11 student
We were invited by The Henshaw Arts and Craft Centre in Knaresborough to explore the theme of inclusion and diversity with our Wrenthorpe pupils. To celebrate our differences, raise awareness and acceptance and give a visual platform to individual voices. We were asked to create a chair that could invite others to see things from a different perspective, to question our perception of ‘disability’.
We decided we would focus on a school chair and try to make it have a fun, friendly and positive feeling rather than the serious and unfriendly feeling they often have surrounding them.
HERE IT IS! What do you think? We are really proud of the final piece!

“I just want to thank you for all the time and understanding that you have put into supporting X’s care and education over the past few years. Despite the fact she was never really able to settle back into full time education, I am still immensely proud of her for the fact she was able to sit her GCSEs despite everything. On a personal note, the fact that you were able to support me throughout an extremely difficult time in my life with patience and understanding is something I will always remember and be extremely grateful for. Thank You.”
“X has really benefitted from the home tutor service. Hopefully next year we will get her in more.”
“communication between school and home is excellent. Consideration is given regarding pupils needs and abilities, I feel confident and settled with that. This provision is needed so much and we feel lucky to be able to access it.”
“The pastoral support offered has been fantastic for X. PHPRU is the only educational facility that X can engage with. I wish we had been referred sooner.”
“Staff members are very kind and helpful. Home tutors are fantastic. I would also like to say how appreciative I am for how understanding and supportive staff are for children and families that are struggling in one way or another. Thank you!”
“Early days, so little experience with on-site but at home tuition and general support have been fantastic so far. Thank You.”
“X is doing well with home tutors. They have been really positive and she is engaging well.”
“We just wanted to say thank you to all the staff at PHPRU. It is evident that all staff have helped X since she joined the school. The school is well led. Staff always have time for X and provide her with a safe and caring environment.”
