Our vision

Whitehouse PRU provides a safe and nurturing environment where pupils can re-engage with education and improve their life chances. The whole team collaborates around the child, working with families, mainstream schools and outside agencies.

Our aims –
Together as inclusion experts we will:

  • Reignite children’s curiosity and love of learning with engaging opportunities to improve attitudes and attendance 

  • Deliver bespoke support to promote personal development including self-regulation of behaviour, social skills and mental health 

  • Identify additional needs to plan personalised support, while providing clear and consistent expectations and boundaries to teach appropriate behaviour 
  • Prepare children for transition to their next educational setting, whether mainstream or special 

  • Show children the value of local community so that they leave us caring and thoughtful citizens
