KEY INFORMATION

Ofsted say that this is a GOOD school. In summary:

A Pupil Referral Unit (PRU) is a maintained school that is set up specifically to deal with pupils that otherwise would not receive a suitable education for any reason, including illness or exclusion. PRUs are sometimes referred to as ‘alternative provision’. A maintained county school or special school cannot be a PRU.

  • The teachers in charge, other senior staff, members of the management committee, and the local authority have worked well to improve teaching and raise pupils’ achievement.

  • The unit has made good improvement since the last inspection and it is well placed to improve further.

  • All groups of pupils achieve well and make good progress, especially in reading and in mathematics.

  • The quality of teaching is good and systems for assessing pupils’ attainment and progress are very thorough.

  • Pupils behave well and feel safe. The highly skilled behaviour mentors make an excellent contribution to improvements in pupils’ behaviour and to changing their attitudes to learning.

  • The curriculum is varied and interesting. It promotes pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and their awareness of British values well.

  • The unit meets with a good level of success in reintegrating pupils into mainstream schools, or finding a suitable special school placement for those with the most complex needs.
