A Pupil Referral Unit (PRU) is a type of school that offers education to students who are; at risk of exclusion, permanently excluded from, or are not attending school for other reasons, such as illness (physical and / or psychological) or pregnancy.

The PRUs ‘core’ offer is to provide short-term placements with the aim of successful re-integration into a mainstream setting. Whatever the context of the placement, a student’s progress is assessed and monitored at all stages of their placement to ensure that provision remains appropriate and is outcome focused.
