Welcome to
Whitehouse Pupil Referral Unit

We are very proud of our unique setting. The Whitehouse PRU is a pupil referral unit for primary school aged pupils. We help and support pupils to re-engage with their learning both academically and socially.

Our prime purpose is to prepare pupils to be ready to return to mainstream or to transfer to the most appropriate provision.

Whitehouse PRU is co-located with the Bridgeview Special School. Bridgeview is a special school for pupils with social, emotional and mental health needs.

We are part of the Venn Academy Trust which consists of a group of inspirational mainstream and specialist schools in Hull and Doncaster.

Venn Academy Trust’s main objective is to ensure that all pupils make exceptional progress through the development of outstanding teachers. Our approach promotes and celebrates individuality, whilst encouraging the pursuit of excellence.

I matter…

The things I do and the words I say are meaningful.

I am important…

People care about me and listen to me when I use my voice.

I belong…

Whitehouse is my school and I am an important part of it.
