South Cumbria Pupil Referral Unit

Hello and welcome to our website.  We hope that it reflects the opportunities for the children and young people of South Cumbria who come to us from both primary and secondary schools across South Cumbria via a referral from their mainstream school or following a permanent exclusion from school.

We are a specialist provision that works with a variety of agencies to support children and young people who require additional support with their social, emotional and health needs.  We aim to support and develop pupils so they can re-engage and reintegrate back into mainstream education and be a valuable part of society.   Where pupils’ needs are best met within the service, we aim to support them they fulfil their potential during their time with us.

We hold one another to account to  provide a positive, inclusive, safe and secure environment  for our young people to feel confident to learn.  We ensure our pupils feel valued, respected and supported by empathetic staff who consider the individual needs of each pupil.  We aim for all to develop resilience  and become valuable members of society  who are accountable for their behaviours.  We are very proud of our school and all our students achieve and we appreciate the support of our families and community.   

Any concerns of parents/carers will be listened to and acted upon where possible so that the needs of their children are effectively met. We also work with many partner organisations such as Health, Social Care, Police and SEND support services.

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.
