Craven Pupil Referral Service is a secondary Alternative Provision that provides full and part-time education and support for children and young people who, for a variety of reasons, are unable to access mainstream education. Craven Pupil Referral Service has a transient cohort. Permanently excluded pupils are admitted on the sixth day following exclusion; preventative placements may be emergency ones to support mainstream schools and reduce permanent exclusion; a pupil may be out of area and in need of an assessment place, or the assessment place maybe for the purposes of an EHCP assessment request. Groups change on a weekly (sometimes daily) basis, which must be borne in mind when analysing any data. Craven Pupil Referral Service takes pupils from seven different schools in the Craven area, which includes South Craven, Skipton, Settle, Upper Wharfedale and Nidderdale.
Craven Pupil Referral Service is a Local Authority Pupil Referral Unit and is part of the Craven collaborative of schools. Cohort characteristics vary considerably from year to year at Craven Pupil Referral Service due to the impact of the number of referrals from the Local Authority and local mainstream schools, throughout the academic year. Pupils and their families have a range of factors, most notably: socio-economic, ethnicity, speech and language deficits, social and emotional disorders, negative behaviours persistent absenteeism, medical problems and entrenched low attendance.
