New Regent’s College is a pupil referral unit (PRU) for Hackney schools. It caters for children and young people at both primary and secondary stages of education.
A PRU is a local authority funded school set up specifically for pupils that otherwise would not receive a suitable education. Reason for this could include illness or exclusion.
PRUs are sometimes referred to as ‘alternative provision’ or AP for short.
A special school cannot be a PRU because special schoosl are set up to specifically make special educational provision for children or young people with SEN.
PRUs are required to make reasonable adjustments to meet the needs of all their pupls.
Information about additional needs:
The government has asked schools to provide information about support for children with additional needs.
SEN Information Reports (SEN - Special Educational Needs) are intended to tell you the practical day to day approach taken within each individual school. They should be written in a way that is helpful, clear and meaningful for parents.
Please see the schools website for these reports, ask the school for a printed copy or see the following Hackney Local Offer articles:
