Pupils attend BCPRU for either an 8 to 10 week ‘turnaround placement’ or a 20 to 24 week ‘assessment placement’. During this time, the learning needs of each individual pupil are accurately assessed to support personalised learning. This is delivered through high quality teaching, with special attention being given to the social, emotional, mental health and behavioural needs of learners and any underlying special educational needs.

The intense intervention that BCPRU offers creates an environment where behaviours and attitudes, that are often engrained, can be managed effectively. This allows pupils to re-engage with education and experience success. This in turn fosters confidence and self-belief within our pupils and makes it possible for the pupil to undertake a change of educational trajectory. As a result, of the calm, focused and supportive setting, pupils experience accelerated academic progress and the closing of any gaps in learning.

In real terms, BCPRU offers pupils a fresh start in a new environment, away from the influence of peers and experiences that have previously affected their ability to succeed. BCPRU creates a highly structured and calm environment where highly skilled staff have a unified child centred approach that sets high standards and constantly works towards achieving them.

The curriculum is very structured and teaches English, maths and group reading every day. In addition to this, science, humanities, PSHCE, success in school and practical subjects are also taught. Within the curriculum, specific work is done to support the improvement of social skills, behaviours and attitudes that will support a successful return to school. This focus on improving social skills, behaviours and attitudes is evident throughout everything that is done at BCPRU, with staff taking every opportunity to support improved behaviour and learning in a holistic way.

Positive relationships with outside agencies also support individuals moving forward. A Safer Schools Police Officer is attached to BCPRU along with other organisations that support the curriculum and carry out targeted input with individuals where necessary.

Evidence of the impact, that BCPRU has, is shown in the number of young people who return to mainstream schooling. In 2016-17, 86% of pupils that attended BCPRU returned to a mainstream school. 69% were still in mainstream education 6 months later.
