BCPRU takes pupils from the secondary age range from the whole of Bradford. It comprises of two separate sites, Aireview and Jesse Street, who work together as one single PRU. BCPRU is committed to providing a safe, caring and stimulating environment for pupils placed by their respective Behaviour and Attendance Collaborative (BAC). The key aim is to prevent permanent exclusion and all the adverse consequences which such labelling and experiences create, and enable pupils to succeed in mainstream education.
BCPRU provides 50 short-term places, 25 on each site, for Key Stage 3 and 4 pupils who have either been permanently excluded or who are at risk of permanent exclusion. Pupils involved with the Youth Offending Service, those who are failing to attend or those who have child protection issues are also considered. The aim for BCPRU is to re-engage the pupil and allow for them to successfully return to mainstream schooling. If an individual pupil is not able to manage in a mainstream setting, guidance from BCPRU will help to inform the school/BAC so that appropriate educational provision can be identified to meet the individual pupil’s educational needs.
