07 Feb SCHOOL EXCLUSIONS AND PUPIL REFERRAL UNITS/ ALTERNATIVE PROVISION
BBC Radio 4 is making a documentary about school exclusions and alternative provision, sometimes known as pupil referral units – schools for kids who have been removed from mainstream.
During our research, a number of issues have cropped up.
We want to get in touch with any parent carers who are concerned by what they see as repeated or inappropriate use of restraint or physical intervention on children attending PRUs/ AP schools.
We are also hoping to speak with parent carers who feel their child was unfairly removed from school, either through exclusion or through a ‘managed move’ that the family felt was unfair or inappropriate.
No one will make this decision for you. It is up to you if you want to get in touch. These are very important issues and it would be very kind of you if you could help us tell this story.
If you want more information, you can speak to the programme producer Alys Harte in complete confidence on 07912583640 or via [email protected]
