OFSTED REPORT November 2005

Bradford Central Pupil Referral Unit (PRU) is a split-site unit comprising of three independent centres and was inspected by Ofsted in October 2008 and was judged to be good with outstanding features.

Two of the centres, Aireview and Jesse Street, provide a total of 50 short-term placements for Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 pupils who have either been permanently excluded or who are nearing exclusion.  Both centres have close links with the mainstream schools through the Behaviour and Attendance Collaboratives (BACs).  One of the purposes of the centres is to provide education to those pupils who have been permanently excluded and to support them in to their next appropriate educational provision.  The centres also work to capacity with young people who are nearing exclusion with the intention of providing educational assessment and guidance, strong pastoral support through multi-agency links and a planned return to their own mainstream school.  Referral for preventative placements are through the appropriate Behaviour and Attendance Collaborative.  A referral form may be downloaded from here.

The third centre, Ellar Carr, provides longer-term full-time provision for up to 36 Key Stage 3 pupils, the majority of whom have a Statement of Special Educational Needs for Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties (SEBD). There is currently no SEBD school in Bradford. Some pupils transfer to Ellar Carr from the Primary PRU as part of the Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 3 transfer process whilst others are referred via the Special Educational Needs Panel (SENIP).
