Alternative Provision

Find out about Alternative Education Provision in Bournemouth for pupils either at risk of permanent exclusion, pupils with medical needs or who are emotionally vulnerable and not able to attend a mainstream school

Bournemouth has 1 Pupil Referral Unit (PRU) for all key stages – Tregonwell Academy.

Places are commissioned for either pupils who are permanently excluded, those at risk of permanent exclusion and for pupils with medical needs or who are emotionally vulnerable and not able to attend mainstream school.

For pupils with medical needs, schools make individual pupil referrals to the local authority and places are commissioned according to agreed criteria. Where a placement is not agreed, advice will be given to the requesting school as to the reasons why and any further action that is required by them.
