Where Next for Pupils Excluded from Special Schools and PRUs

This DCSF study of pupils permanently excluded from special schools and Pupil Referral Units (PRUs) was commissioned in the light of concerns expressed in the report of the Practitioners’ Group on School Behaviour and Discipline, relating to the quality of educational provision for young people with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties (BESD). The objectives of the report were to examine the events and processes that led up to the young person’s permanent exclusion from a special school or PRU, identify what forms of alternative provision are available once excluded, identify the destinations of young people after their permanent exclusion, and identify best practice in planning for permanent exclusion.
