Special Schools

Pupil referral centres

Although most pupils receive education in a school (mainstream or special), there are a range of circumstances in which suitable education has to be provided outside school. In such circumstance, pupils may be admitted to a pupil referral centre/pupil referal unit.

Pupil referal units (PRU) are legally both a type of school and provider of education otherwise than at school. PRUs’ relatively small size, rapidly changing roll and the type of pupils they teach mean that they are not subject to all the legislative requirements that apply to mainstream and special schools.

Here you will find contact details and reports for pupil referal centres:

Evergreen Academy
Midpoint Centre (Key Stage 4 PRU)
The Braybrook Centre (Key Stage 3 PRU)
The Orchard Centre and The Nightingale Centre (Home & Hospital PRU)

Out of city and independent provision

If you were thinking of sending your child or young person to a school or college out of Wolverhampton, the place of learning must be approved.

Those which meet the SEND Code of Practice criteria can be found on the approved independent special schools and colleges list.  This list is updated by Gov.uk on a termly basis. The school or college of your choice must be named in your young person’s Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan.  

The duties and rights relating to admissions are the same across maintained schools, academies, further education colleges and non-maintained special schools in that:

  • A child or young person has a right to request that an institution on the approved list is named in their EHC plan
  • If the institution is named in an EHC plan, the local authority is under a qualified duty to secure a place
  • If the institution is named in an EHC plan, the institution must admit the pupil or young person

The City of Wolverhampton Council has a duty to be satisfied with the named school’s most recent education and social care inspection when preparing the EHC plan.

Alternative provision

We believe all children, including those in alternative provision (AP) settings, deserve a high-quality state education.

Alternative provision is recognised by the Department for Education as, "...education arranged by local authorities for pupils who, because of exclusion, illness or other reasons, would not otherwise receive  suitable education; education arranged by schols for pupils on a fixed period exclusion; and pupils being directed by schools to off-site provision to improve their behaviour." (DfE 2013)

In accordance with Section 19(1) of the Education Act 1996. as amended by section 3 of the Children, Schools and Families Act 2010, local authorities are responsible for arranging ful-time education for permenently excluded pupils, and for pupils who - because of illness or other reasons - would not recieve suitable education without such provision.
