Welcome to Milton Keynes Primary Pupil Referral Unit (PRU)
Hello. We are now heading towards the last week of this Academic year and the start of the Summer holidays. The last day of term is Friday 21st July and the start of the next term is Monday 4th September 2017. The children return on this day at 8.45 am. A copy of our term dates for the year are available on our website.
It has been a very busy and productive year with many achievements along the way, including many of our children displaying their Art work in our Art Gallery exhibitions, being published in National Anthologies of Poetry and developing leadership skills through our Young Leadership Challenge.
We are also well underway for achieving our Healthy Schools and Healthy Young Person’s Awards. We will complete these in early September. In September our new Specialist Teaching assistant for Physical Literacy and Wellbeing will be joining our team.
Next year promises to be an even more exciting year as we will be introducing our newly written “Creative Curriculum”. This curriculum has a therapeutic base to learning and will support your child’s academic progress, social and emotional development and also positive mental health and wellbeing.
We will also be introducing our “Home School Learning” when all children will be expected, together with their families, to read together each night as part of an enjoyable experience. Further details will be sent out at the beginning of term with regards to this.
As you know, Milton Keynes Primary Pupil Referral Unit (PRU) is on an exciting and transformational journey. We are now about to start the third year of our ambitious 5 year plan, which will focus on “Innovation and Creativity”. We have continued to develop our “Optimal Learning Environment”, which our children have fondly named “The World’s Most Beautiful School”. You can read more about this journey here on our website.
We continue to deliver our vision of; “High ambitions for all; Dreaming out loud together – Changing attitudes one step at a time”.
We are a small, short-stay strengths based school that provides for up to 25 pupils with high ambitions for the children who attend here.
We provide timely, short-term intervention for primary-aged pupils with social, emotional and mental health challenges (SEMH) who are struggling to manage in mainstream schools.
Within a caring and therapeutic environment, our skilled team works closely with schools and other agencies to:
Support and sustain pupils within mainstream provision
Provide opportunities, within an appropriate environment, that allow pupils to make the social, emotional and academic progress needed for returning to mainstream school
Support schools to manage the needs of their pupils as a dual placement with the PRU, so that pupils are able to transition back full-time into their own school
Reduce the number of permanently excluded children of primary school age.
Educate permanently excluded primary pupils, enabling them to return successfully to a new mainstream school.
We are proud of the education we offer our children and the high standards we maintain. We constantly strive to make our school a happy place where children’s achievements are recognised and rewarded at every level. Our emphasis is on praise, challenge and encouragement to increase children’s self-esteem and confidence.
This website is intended to introduce you to the life and work of our school. If there is anything further you would like to know about our school then please do not hesitate to get in touch.
If you think you may be interested in requesting a dual placement to support a child, please contact us for an initial discussion.
We hope you enjoy our website and will continue to build on it in 2017 / 2018.
Have a wonderful Summer holiday, make many special family memories and for those returning in September, we look forward to seeing you. For those children who are Graduating, we wish you an amazing journey – be the very best you can be!
Ms Mills, Headteacher MK Primary PRU.
Milton Keynes Primary PRU has developed a strategy to support the whole school community in understanding and managing asthma.
Ms Mills, Headteacher of Milton Keynes Primary PRU said, “Here at Milton Keynes Primary PRU, we are fully committed to developing a Healthy School and ensuring all children are enabled to develop their full health potential is vitally important to us. Supporting families with children who have asthma is really important."
Liz Wilson, Public Health Practitioner and Healthy Young Peoples Network co-ordinator said, “Becoming an asthma friendly school is a proactive approach to addressing awareness and prevention of asthma locally.
This is such a fantastic example of good practice that the Primary Pru will be adding to their National Healthy Schools and Local Healthy Young People’s Award applications. “
